SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D
At 8-9-3 the Ducks are behind their money line projected win total of 9.5 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 4 good wins but they also have 4 bad losses. They have won 33% of their road games and were expected to win 41%. At home they have a 45% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 53%. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 3-5-2, 30%. In simulations where the Ducks played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 45.7% of the time (#22 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #16 winning 49.8%.
Their record is better than it should be. Their average goal differential is -0.75 which ranks #28 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #25. They are the #26 ranked team in goal differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #28 ranked team among home teams. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -1.43.

NEXT 5 GAME OUTLOOK: PARTLY CLOUDY
The forecast for their next 5 games is a mixed bag. They have 2 likely wins where they are winning >60% of the simulations which translates to being at least a -150 favorite, and just 4 games where they are a clear underdog.
The most likely scenario over the next 5 games is a record of 2-3 (34% chance). Their chances of winning 4 or more are 15%. Their chances of winning their next 5 are 2.1%. At #9 in the conference, they are behind the Stars by one point. With a -0.52 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 5 games they may find themselves further behind in the conference. They are in a battle with Oilers in the conference. In the short-term, we do predict much of a change in the gap between them and the Oilers. Their projected wins (2.38) over the next 5 games is virtually the same so we do not expect a change in standings in the near term.
