Expectation bar: Matched

The Preds would’ve been below on expectation two weeks ago. It seemed like they were pulling the same stunt they tried last season. But things have evened out, as Pekka Rinne is carrying over a wildly successful 2017 postseason into the 2017-18 regular season. The Preds probably didn’t figure they’d have this much competition in the Central, though.
