NEXT 3 GAME OUTLOOK: STORMY
The Red Wings next 3 game forecast looks rough, to say the least. They have 2 games where they are expected to be competitive with at least a 47% chance of winning, and 8 games where they are a clear underdog.
The most likely scenario over the next 3 games is a record of 1-2 (46% chance). Their chances of winning their next 3 are 4.2%. They have a +0.78 advantage in projected wins over their next 3 games and could narrow the gap. They are in a battle with Devils in the conference. In the short-term, we do predict much of a change in the gap between them and the Devils. Their projected wins (1.02) over the next 3 games is virtually the same so we do not expect a change in standings in the near term.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: C
At 18-23-7 the Red Wings are behind their money line projected win total of 19 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 13 good wins and one bad loss. They have won 36% of their road games and were expected to win 34%. At home they have a 38% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 45%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (3-6-1, 30%) is under their expected 39% win percentage. In simulations where the Red Wings played every other team (neutral ice in playoffs) they won just 40% of the time (#25 in the league). They have moved up from #30 in the league back on 10/25.
Their record should be better. Their average goal differential is -0.46 which ranks #23 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #27. They are the #24 ranked team in goal differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #26 ranked team among home teams. Based on goal differential, they are trending up. Their average goal differential in their past 6 games is +0.33 (#11 over this stretch).

On 10/27 their projected points was 65.4 before increasing to 78.6 on 12/7. Their current projected point total is 73.2. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the East at 0.4% (250/1 odds) and a 0.2% chance of winning it all (500/1).
