27. Montreal Candiens

Previous: No. 25

The Canadiens have begun to right their ship with a 6-3-1 record int heir last 10 games, but they still sit at third worst in the NHL in goal differential at minus-16. Maybe the most surprising stat: Carey Price’s sub-.900 save percentage on the year.

The goalie, who signed an eight-year, $84 million extension this offseason, is having a very rough year thus far. While all the goals are not his fault, the Canadiens have to hope that Price starts to improve and helps them get back into contention.
