I can't figure it out. They've gone from being the nail to being the hammer in a week. Getting better goaltending is certainly helping, but the offense is displaying actual skill. Crazy, right? And instead of being "tough to play against" (which means losing close games), they're actually piling up some wins. And not the sort of fake kind they got at the beginning of the last road trip. The choking away of multiple-goal leads, allowing 4 a game…nowhere to be found in this mini-streak. Let's hope they can keep it going…they've got quite a bit more winning to do if they want to climb back in the playoff hunt. (If you have a moment, check out the OTF Virtual Food Drive for Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee. If everyone who reads this today donated just $1, we'd smash our goal, and more importantly, provide thousands of meals to people who really need it. THANK YOU to everyone who's donated so far…it's greatly appreciated!)
