30. Buffalo Sabres

Previous: No. 28

Buffalo’s minus-15 goal differential is the second-worst mark in the league, ahead of only Arizona’s minus-21. Not that the goaltending has been anywhere near satisfactory (Robin Lehner’s .911/2.78 is well ahead of backup Chad Johnson’s numbers), but the scoring just has to pick up in Buffalo. After the 12-point triumvirate of Jason Pominville, Evander Kane and Jack Eichel, things start to fall off a cliff to the direction of the teams’ fifth-best scorers having four points apiece.
