CALGARY - Halifax Mooseheads teammates Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon might want to watch.

Portland Winterhawks blueliner Seth Jones should probably tune in.

Other than that, you can't blame sports fans if they flip their flat-screens to the Final Four championship game or Golf Channel's Masters preview coverage instead of watching Monday's meeting between the Calgary Flames and the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center (7 p.m. MST, Sportsnet West, Sportsnet 960).

These are, after all, the worst teams in the NHL.

The Avalanche (12-21-5), who have lost four straight games, are in the cellar with 29 points. The Flames (13-20-4), have dropped five in a row — and are on a 13-game winless skid away from the Saddledome — are only one point better.
