About the Avalanche: Colorado’ point total is the NHL’s worst since Atlanta had 39 points in 1999-2000. Hello.
About the Stars: It’s the season ender and Fan Appreciation Night. Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said in a postgame interview on KTCK The Ticket after Thursday night’s 7-3 loss to Nashville that “it’s going to be a quick turnaround” and not a major rebuild for the Stars in 2017-18. The Stars also recalled forwards Mark McNeill, 24, (9 goals in 76 games, obtained in Johnny Oduya trade) and 2015 first-rounder Denis Gurianov, 20 (10 goals in 54 games) from the AHL.
