Well, the game is streaky for sure - you loose two games because of bad luck and then you are more likely to loose more. And on the other hand, you can beat a good team that start you winning streak. It's not a bad thing generally, although it can be very depressing. But look at NHL, the streak are there as well. Panthers in 15/16 went from 14-12-4 to 26-12-4, CBJ in 16/17 made it to 16 wins (and yet one season ago they made second longest loosing streak at the beginning of season of all time with 8 losses). And those were not great teams that were contenders for SC. Rather ok or mediocre teams. Ducks are not bad and they have 12 losses in a row now.
