No. 29: Colorado Avalanche

Previous: 29th

Record: 12-24-1

The Avs are in search of a heartbeat. Colorado currently has the least amount of points in the standings, which makes the battle for the tough Central Division even harder as we are now into 2017.

Colorado has the worst goals-against average at 3.35 and has allowed 124 goals, which is also good for last in the entire NHL. For as talented of a team as the Avalanche to struggle this bad is rather mind-boggling.
