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 0 bad losses. They have won 38% of their road games and were expected to win 34%. At home they have a 44% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 44%. Over the past 3 weeks they have played better going 7-3-0 in a stretch where their projected win rate was 4.2 wins. In simulations where the Red Wings played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 38.7% of the time (#30 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #29 winning 38.6%.
