Puck Probability: Odds for Wild at Kings, October 19

Wild KingsIn advance of today’s early – very early – start between the Wild and Kings in downtown Los Angeles, we’re back with some odds regarding 10 things that just might happen during the 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 6 vs. the Minnesota Wild is Thomas Drance from the Score in Canada.

NOTE: A few years back, when he was with the Vancouver Sun, we had him as a guest on the podcast to debate several issues. After reading this article, you check that show out here.

Odds by MayorsManor:

4:1 – Jonathan Quick records an assist on one of the Kings goals

5:1 – Wild forward Jason Poninville will look for retribtion for last year’s elbow by Dustin Brown. Instead, he’ll end up taking three penalties in the process.

10:1 – Jarret Stoll, after not winning a single faceoff in the first period, will break his stick over his knee ala Bo Jackson

15:1 – Andy Andreoff records a Gordie Howe hat trick

32:1 – Quick records a shutout, breaking his tie with Rogie Vachon for the team’s all-time lead

Odds by the Score’s Thomas Drance:

Even – Dustin Brown and Zach Parise will get into it after the whistle, and hockey journalists will rush to tweet about how they were Olympic teammates in Sochi and Vancouver

3:2 – @theroyalhalf will note that while Zach Parise is handsome, Jeff Carter is handsomer

6:1 – The Minnesota Wild, a team that goes out of their way to slam dump and chase hockey, will get outshot by the Los Angeles Kings – the league’s most effective dump and chase team

45:1 – In a rare moment of sportsmanship, Mikael Granlund and Mike Richards will hug before a face-off while bonding over their mutual dislike of Ducks center Ryan Kesler

100:1 – Bob Miller and Jim Fox will nail the pronunciations for both Parise’s(Par-eezy) and Jason Zucker’s (Zoo-ker) last names
