Puck Probability: Odds for Oilers at Kings, October 14

Yakupov Oilers KingsContinuing with our season series, it’s time to once again take a look at the odds for the next Kings game. As always, we’ll provide the tidbits related to various things that may occur on the Kings side of the ice, and we have a guest to share thoughts related to the other bench. Joining us for Game 4 vs. the Oilers is current radio host on TSN 1260 in Edmonton, Jason Strudwick.

We should also point out that in his 674 games as an NHL defenseman, Strudwick scored 13 goals. And, yes, one of those 13 was against the Kings. It came during the first period of a game between the Canucks and Kings, played in Los Angeles on February 29, 2000. The game ended in a 1-1 tie, with Ziggy Palffy recording the only goal for LA. The real stars of the game were the goalies, as Canuck goalie Felix Potvin made 40 saves and Kings’ Stephane Fiset had a 32-save effort of his own.

Now on to tonight’s game…

Odds by MayorsManor:

2 – 1 Jonathan Quick will stop all 11 shots from Mark Arcobello, proving once and for all who the best hockey player from Milford, Connecticut is

3 – 1 Teddy Purcell scores a hat trick – because, honestly, don’t all former Kings go nuts against LA?

9 – 1 Jarret Stoll, still smarting from Nail Yakupov’s sliding goal celebration, will cross check him in the first period

14 – 1 After scoring the go-ahead goal late in the third period, Justin Williams will celebrate like this:

94 – 1 Ryan Smyth will rent a suite to take in the game – complete with extra security, of course, because LA can be a scary place

Odds by TSN’s Jason Strudwick:

2 – 1 Oilers are caught puck watching and the Kings score an easy goal

4 – 1 The Nuge, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, scores a goal

10 – 1 Head coach Dallas Eakins fixes his hair more then once on camera

15 -1 Kings score a shorthanded goal

500-1 The Nuge fights again…(He is getting confident and standing up for himself. I love it!)
