SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B

At 8-8-1 the Coyotes have as many wins as were expected. If you add up their per game money line implied probabilities they would have 7.9 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 5 good wins vs 3 bad losses. They have won 40% of their road games and were expected to win 40%. At home they have a 57% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 56%. Over the past 3 weeks they have played better going 6-3-1 in a stretch where their projected win rate was 4.9 wins. In simulations where the Coyotes played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 40.2% of the time (#28 in the league). They have moved up from #30 in the league back on 10/22.

Their record should be better. Their average goal differential is 0 which ranks #17 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #23. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #5 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #20 in road games. They are trending down. Their average goal differential in their past 6 games is -1.5 (#30 over this stretch).
