Puck Probability: Odds for Blackhawks at Kings, November 29

Quick Kings NHLWhen the 2014-15 NHL schedule was released, this was one of the games fans and players instantly circled. We can’t promise their first game since overtime in Game 7 of last year’s Western Conference Final will live up to the excitement from that entire series, but we can all certainly hope.

Exactly what will go down at Staples Center on Saturday remains up for discussion, so we asked Tab Bamford of The Fourth Period magazine to join us for this edition of our Puck Probability series. Buckle up, as several of the following things just might happen…

Odds by MayorsManor:

3:2 – Jonathan Quick start in goal for the Kings.

5:1 – LA scores more short power goals than Chicago scores power play goals.

10:1 – Brayden McNabb gets into a fight after crushing Patrick Kane along the boards.

300:1 – In honor of his 300th regular season NHL game, Kyle Clifford will score a hat trick.

500:1 – Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville will display his disagreement with a penalty by making an inappropriate gesture.

27,000:1 – Alec Martinez scores in overtime to win the game. [Seriously, that can’t happen again, can it?]

Odds by Tab Bamford:

1:1 – You believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that Marcus Kruger has been maimed.

2:1 – You honestly consider that Niklas Hjalmarsson is made of Adamantium.

10:1 – The Kings score a PP goal. Chicago leads the league in penalty killing, but the Kings scored on 24% of their advantages in 10 games against the Blackhawks last year (including converting six of 19 in the Western Conference Final).

12:1 – Corey Crawford allows a third goal. He’s only allowed more than two on four occasions this season (entering Wednesday night in Colorado).

15:1 – Kris Versteeg attempts a move that only Patrick Kane or Pavel Datsyuk could pull off.

500:1 – It works for Versteeg.

1,000:1 – Joel Quenneville’s lines last 60 minutes.
