30. Buffalo Sabres

Previous: No. 28

Losing a Friday night battle to a pretty bad Florida Panthers team, the Sabres are 5-9-4 on the year. They have the second-worst goals per game average and second worst goal differential on the year at a minus-21. 

They still have some excitement in their lineup with the likes of Evander Kane and Jack Eichel, but this team is giving up way too many goals (65) for the little bit of offensive production it is getting from a few lines.
