REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Their 43-32-7 record last season failed to meet expectations. Their expected win percentage was 57%. Anyone betting on them to win every game would have lost a lot (-1070) based on a 100 unit risk per game. They were not good on puck lines going 32-50 (-1008 loss). They went over 37 times and came in under 41 times. They are favored in their upcoming game vs the San Jose Sharks. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM STATISTICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES

Their record should be better. Since 10/2/2018 their average goal differential is +0.22 (includes playoff games) which ranks #12 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #16. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #4 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #18 in road games.
