from Adam Getz of CBS Sports,
A couple of weeks ago I looked at the Southeast Division and how every team in it has been outscored by its opponents this season. That is not a good sign, and it’s not something that happens very often. It’s never happened in the post-lockout NHL, and the closest we came was during the 2006-07 season when the Atlanta Thrashers, the winners of the Southeast that year, finished as plus-one, the only team to outscore its opponents for the season.
They were then demolished in the playoffs, losing four straight games.
It’s still true today, and with the Washington Capitals currently owning the “best” goal-differential at minus-12, the division, as a whole,has been outscored by 107 goals this season.
