Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: D

At 7-8-1 the Devils are behind their money line projected win total of 7.8 wins. They have 4 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 3 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game). They have exceeded expectations in home games. Their 6-1-1 home record is +24% better than their expected win percentage. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 3-6-1, 30%. In simulations where the Devils played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 44.4% of the time (#24 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #24 winning 45.8%.

Their record should be better. Their average goal differential is -0.44 which ranks #25 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #28. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #2 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #31 in road games. They are trending down. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -1.43 (#29 over this stretch).
