SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: F

Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 18-23-6 Flyers 'should have' 22 wins. They have 9 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 7 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game). They have been below expectations on the road and at home. Their 8-13-3 road record is -10% lower than expected. Their 10-10-3 home record is -10% lower. Over the past 3 weeks they have played poorly going 3-7-2, 25%. In simulations where the Flyers played every other team (neutral ice in playoffs) they won just 46.2% of the time (#19 in the league). They have moved up from #23 in the league back on 1/14.

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average goal differential is -0.74 which ranks #30 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #28. They are the #27 ranked team in goal differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #28 ranked team among home teams. Based on goal differential, they are trending up. Their average goal differential in their past 7 games is -0.29 (#20 over this stretch).

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: MIXED BAG (DOWN OVERALL)

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. From the start of the season to now their chances are down to 77.5%. The playoffs are not likely with their 2% chance and a projected #15 finish in the conference. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the East at 0.7% (150/1 odds) and a 0.3% chance of winning it all (300/1).
