No. 30: Colorado Avalanche

Previous: No. 30

Record: 19-46-3 (41 points)

This has been a lost season for the Colorado Avalanche. They’ve lost their last two games, the latest being a 1-0 shutout defeat to the Arizona Coyotes. Guys like Matt Duchene, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog are nowhere near the level they’re normally at. Let’s see if the Avs can get to 20 wins this season.
