No. 29: Colorado Avalanche
Season Record: 11-15-1
Oh my! The Avs lost 10-1 to the Canadiens on Saturday. A loss was expected against the team that is first place in the league. But to give up 10 goals? It didn’t really matter who the goalie was here; Varlamov gave up six goals, and Pickard gave up four. It was also Jarome Iginla’s 1500th NHL career game. How sad.
The good news is that they won two games on either side of this horrific loss, so I guess that allows them to save face a bit. Captain Gabriel Landeskog has been back in the lineup for the last few games after being out for six consecutive games. Can he help this faltering team?
