Over the last 6 games the PP is 2 for 29 (6.8%) and Goal has just 2g in the last 7 games. That's a 10g/season pace over those 7. That from the greatest American goal scorer in history as far as we can tell. (accept for maybe Bobby Hull) Not blaming Goal, just asking how long can he realistically be kept down? Holloway is going to score goals and create assists this year... And how long can the PP, with the talent they have, operate at that rate? Offense is often streaky, but I just don't believe they all can be kept out of the net forever. They just have to bear down and finish. Score goals and play with the lead.
If they could split ND this weekend they would be .500 vs. the current #(3)4, #6, #7, and #8 teams in the country. Normally that would be considered a pretty decent result.
