SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D

Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 19-25-4 Kings 'should have' 22 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 vs 8 bad losses. They have won 35% of their road games and were expected to win 40%. At home they have a 44% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 51%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (5-5-1, 45%) is pretty much what was expected of them and mirrors their season overall. In the pre-season, the Kings were expected to be a below average team (#17) in power rank, and they have managed to be even worse. In simulations where the Kings played every other team (neutral ice in playoffs) they won just 37.8% of the time (#31 in the league). Their peak rank was #17 in the league back on 6/11.

Their record should be slightly better. Their average goal differential is -0.65 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 #25 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #29 in home games. Based on goal differential, they are trending up. Their average goal differential in their past 6 games is +0.5 (#7 over this stretch).

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: MIXED BAG (DOWN OVERALL)

Before the season, the Kings were projected for 91 points (average per simulation), and their projected points has been up and down this season. On 6/25 their projected points was up to 89.3 before dropping to 64 on 12/18. From the start of the season to now their projected points is down significantly to 72.7. The playoffs are not likely with their 1.5% chance and a projected #14 finish in the conference. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the West at 0.7% (150/1 odds) and a 0.3% chance of winning it all (300/1).
