The Blues finished +6 in goal differential - 8th in the West
The Blues finished with 240 goals - 6th in the West
The Blues finished with giving up 234 goals - 9th or 10th in the West
Only 2 teams in the NHL are going to finish with a positive goal differential and not in the playoffs, Calgary and St. Louis
So what does this mean? When I look at the Blues, I see a team that pretty much is placed where it should be - 11th in the West. I don't think that injuries cost us the 12 more points we needed to make the playoffs, yet we scored enough goals and gave up the right amount of goals to make the playoffs.
Someone help me make sense of this.
