SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D

Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 32-28-12 Panthers 'should have' 36 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 14 good wins but they also have 14 bad losses. They have won 39% of their road games and were expected to win 45%. At home they have a 50% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 54%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (5-3-4, 42%) is under their expected 48% win percentage. The Panthers should be a slightly above average team based on simulations where they won 52.8% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on neutral ice with players available in the playoffs (#11 in the league). They have moved up from #17 in the league back on 12/13.

Their record should be slightly better. Their average goal differential is -0.07 which ranks #18 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #19. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #10 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #23 in road games. Based on goal differential, they are trending up. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is +1.29 (#3 over this stretch).

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: MIXED BAG

Before the season, the Panthers were projected for 94.2 points (average per simulation), and their projected points has been up and down this season. On 11/15 their projected points was up to 94.1 before dropping to 82.1 on 1/17. From the start of the season to now their chances are down to 87%. The playoffs are not likely with their 1.1% chance and a projected #11 finish in the conference. 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).
