Avalanche pile up another loss in fall to Ducks

Another day, another loss.

Following Tuesday's 5-1 defeat to the Anaheim Ducks, the Colorado Avalanche marked their 32nd loss on the season, and third straight defeat.

The Avalanche have a single victory since Dec. 27, a stretch where the team has posted a 1-12-1 record, including Tuesday's loss to the Ducks. Colorado picked up a lone point following an overtime loss to the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 21.

To make matters worse? There are still 35 games of misery remaining.

This campaign already ranks as the fifth-worst since the Avalanche arrived in Denver in 1996:

Season Points Losses
2008-09 69 45
2010-11 68 44
2015-16 82 39
2011-12 88 35
2016-17 28 34

At their current pace, the Avalanche will finish the season with just 49 points. The previous franchise-low in a full season was set in 2008-09, when the Colorado club ended up with 69 points.
