The losses to the Leafs certainly does suck. But lets look at some upside. Would it be acceptable had the Sens gone 2-1 for the remaining three games? If so, that is the equivalent of the points they got with the 1-0-2 record for 4 pts.

The more I think about this 3 point game business the more I hate it. In a season series where a team goes against another for 4 games, a total of 8 points is up for grabs. Now say the teams split the series at 2-0-2, each getting 6 points, that is a total of 12 points taken by two teams in an 8 point series. How the hell does that make any sense? No one single team can get more than 8 points in that series, but the two teams combined nearly doubles it.
