No. 27: Vancouver Canucks

Previous: 29th

Season record: 10-11-2 (22 points)

Fifth in the Pacific Division, the Canucks’ record prior to Tuesday’s win marked the team’s worst start since 1997-98. However, the Canucks came home on a winning note after taking 2 of 3 on a mini road trip and scoring the first goal in each of their last four games.

The trio of Bo Horvat, Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin has combined for 23 goals and 44 points.
