Tough sledding when you not only can’t crack the top five as a division leader, but also trail someone else in your division in these ranks. But don’t take that to mean the Jackets aren’t doing well, because they most certainly are. Some figured they were due for regression, considering Sergei Bobrovsky was out of his mind last season. That just may be his default setting.
