SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: F
Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 17-20-8 Panthers 'should have' 23 wins. They have 12 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 5 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game). They have been below expectations on the road and at home. Their 9-14-3 road record is -12% lower than expected. Their 8-6-5 home record is -14% lower. Losers of 7 in a row they have a 36.2% chance of seeing that extend to 9 straight. In simulations, the Panthers are a below average team and won 49.8% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on neutral ice with players available in the playoffs (#14 in the league). They have moved up from #17 in the league back on 12/13.
Their average goal differential is -0.53 which ranks #25 in the league, which is the same as how they rank in points. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #22 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #28 in road games. They are trending down. Their average goal differential in their past 6 games is -2.33 (#31 over this stretch).

NEXT 3 GAME OUTLOOK: CLOUDY
