Or they're due to physically and/or mentally wear themselves out. That's possible, isn't it?
The team playing in front of Emery and his bionic hip (how long is the warranty on that thing, anyway?) is going to be playing with more and more pressure each passing game as the streak goes on. I also think that any holes or issues will be more easily glossed over or even unnoticed as the wins head into the 20s: What problems could a team that hasn't lost in regulation 20-some games possibly have, right?
You just knew that the longer yesterday's game with CBJ went, the less likely CBJ would win. The 3rd and 4th lines for CHI are something.
