    The team dropped three in a row at home recently. The losses were against excellent competition but it's not something fans are accustomed to after the past few years of tremendous success. They bounced back today against a solid Minnesota team but have two top ten opponents coming up.

    Questions for anyone who knows more about the team than me:

    Did Coach Lovic make the schedule *too* difficult this year?
    What's the problem with the team? Seems like offensive production is down based solely on the "goals for" stat.
    How's the goaltending this year?
    Are we winning face-offs regularly?
    Any other insights?

    I haven't been able to see a game in person yet but will be there this weekend. From what I've heard it may be a reloading year coupled with some injuries. It sounds like we've been hanging with teams pretty well in the first half and then can't keep momentum in the second.

    The coaching staff has been trying to schedule top flight competition for the last several seasons so this may be the young guys adjusting and taking a few lumps. As usual we have a ton of young talent and very few seniors.

    Thanks for the heads up - I missed it somehow.
