No. 30:  Arizona Coyotes

Previous:   28th

Season Record:  9-14-5

Captain Shane Doan reached 554 assists last Thursday against the Calgary Flames.  This puts him in first place for the Coyotes/Jets franchise record for assists.  He and his team also beat the Nashville Predators 4-1 on Saturday.  But this is pretty much all they can write home about right now.

On Monday, they were back to their losing ways, falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a shutout, 7-0.  Yep, 7-0.  They’ve only won one game in December.
