With a -0.46 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 5 games they may find themselves further behind in the conference. They are ahead of the Panthers by 2 points. With a -0.75 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 5 games they may find the gap between them closing.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B-
At 35-30-8 the Flyers are behind their money line projected win total of 35.4 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ goals as a slight favorite, then they have 15 good wins vs 12 bad losses. They have won 47% of their road games and were expected to win 43%. At home they have a 49% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 54%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (6-4-1, 55%) is better than their expected 47% win percentage. The Flyers should be a slightly above average team based on simulations where they won 50.2% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on neutral ice with players available in the playoffs (#14 in the league). They have moved up from #21 in the league back on 2/12.
Their record is better than it should be. Their average goal differential is -0.3 which ranks #22 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #17. This is a relatively better road team than a home team. They are the #18 ranked team in goal differential in road games, vs #26 in home games. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -0.43 which ranks them #20 over this stretch, slightly better than the season overall.

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: MIXED BAG
Before the season, the Flyers were projected for 88.4 points (average per simulation), and their projected points has been up and down this season. On 10/5 their projected points was up to 93.7 before dropping to 74.2 on 1/14. Their current projected point total is 87.6. They are not projected to finish in the Top 8 (#10 in the conference) and only have a 2% chance of making the playoffs. 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).
