While the replacement goaltending has not been at the same level as with Keumper, it's not been the primary cause of the long stretch of troubles. Defensively, we're still alright, but I think the offense dried up quite a bit during the stretch. With less play in the offensive zone, the team has had to defend more, and with more time in the dzone comes more goals allowed even if the defense is playing well. Of the past few games it looks more like we getting some offensive effort from more than 1 line per game, so I think it's also keeping the ice tilted away from our net. More players have stepped things up, but of course could still do so more and more consistently. I do think they're trending back to where they should be though. Hope it is enough to push to the play-offs.
