NHL’s tale of undefeated teams (so far)

Which team will stay unbeaten the longest?

TRUE UNDEFEATED TEAMS

COLORADO AVALANCHE (5-0-0)

The Avalanche have gotten off to a perfect start to their season, scoring no fewer than three goals in each game so far. They began the season with a four-game homestand and then most recently went and defeated the Washington Capitals by a 6-3 score. 

They now are working on a six-game road trip and will take on the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight, followed by the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning this weekend. 




NO REGULATION LOSSES

BUFFALO SABRES (5-0-1)

While Buffalo is the only team in the NHL with more than 10 points, the Avalanche do have a game in hand. It’s way too early to be discussing things like this, but the Sabres don’t own a regulation loss to this point. The one loss they do have came against the Columbus Blue Jackets when Jack Eichel gave the puck away in his own zone in overtime. 

The Sabres have a three-game road trip beginning and will have five of their next six games on the road. They’ll take on the Anaheim Ducks tonight, the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday, and the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. 




PHILADELPHIA FLYERS (2-1-1)

UPDATE: The Flyers lost to the Calgary Flames last night so they’re off the list

NO-WIN CLUB

NEW JERSEY DEVILS (0-4-2)

If you could have predicted one team to be the last one to earn a win, there’s a good chance many would not have picked the Devils. They’ve lost some close games, but they’ve also been blown out, too. Through six games, they’ve given up 29 goals and have scored only 13. A -16 goal differential is going to be difficult to work with. 

They’ve just started a six-game homestand but have a very unusual schedule coming up. 

They have the New York Rangers next on Thursday and the Canucks on Saturday. They then have a five-day break until the following Friday when they host the Arizona Coyotes. After that is another four-day break. So they’ll play two games over a 12-day span. 

They may be better, but it’ll be at least a few weeks before they can make any ground in the standings
