SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: F
Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 8-11-1 Golden Knights 'should have' 11 wins. They have 4 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 0 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game).

Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (4-7-0, 36%) is under their expected 53% win percentage. The Golden Knights are a good team (in simulations) and won 57.3% of the simulations vs every other team playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#9 in the league). Their peak rank was #2 in the league back on 6/11.

Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is +0.14 (#14 over this stretch).
