NEXT 5 GAME OUTLOOK: STORMY
The Red Wings next 5 game forecast looks rough, to say the least. They have 3 games where they are expected to be competitive with at least a 47% chance of winning, and 7 games where they are a clear underdog.
The most likely scenario over the next 5 games is a record of 2-3 (36% chance). Their chances of winning 4 or more are 6.1%. At #15 in the conference, they are behind the Devils by one point. With a -0.53 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 5 games they may find themselves further behind in the conference.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: C
Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 26-37-10 Red Wings 'should have' 29 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 19 good wins and one bad loss. They have won 33% of their road games and were expected to win 35%. At home they have a 38% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 44%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (3-6-1, 30%) is under their expected 34% win percentage. In simulations where the Red Wings played every other team (neutral ice in playoffs) they won just 40.5% of the time (#27 in the league). They have moved up from #30 in the league back on 10/25.
Their record should be slightly better. Their average goal differential is -0.67 which ranks #28 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #29. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #26 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #30 in home games. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -1 which ranks them #23 over this stretch, slightly better than the season overall.
