Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Hurricanes , November 2

Staal CanesThey say you never forget your first, and with the Kings visiting Carolina today, that probably means two different things for a trio of players. Jarret Stoll and Matt Greene don’t have the best memories playing against the Hurricanes. Then with the Oilers, they lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final to the squad in red and white and missed out on their chance to celebrate with the best trophy in sports back in 2006. Forward Justin Williams has a slightly different memory, as he was one the receiving end of that handshake line, earning his first of three Stanley Cup rings. Now, more than seven years later, all three return for an early season game that has nowhere near the same meaning – yet, the Kings surly wouldn’t mind picking up their first win of the roadtrip.

We’ll help set the table for this afternoon’s affair by continuing our Puck Probability series, where we share 10 tidbits related to the game. We’re also mixing it up a little today too, as Jon Rosen will handle things from the L.A. side of the bench, allowing us to jump over and try our hand with a few odds related to the Canes.

Odds by MayorsManor:

2:1 – The Hurricanes mascot will reveal he indeed is a Staal brother too

4:1 – Two different Kings record their first goals of the season after Carolina tries to match up against That 70’s Line

17:1 – During an intermission, Jiri Tlusty drifts off into a haze as he fondly recalls the surplus of talent surrounding him at HC Kladno during the 2012 lockout

24:1 – Given that The Mayor is in Vegas, odds that I’ll try to convince him to go tonight’s Phish concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena

9999999:1 – Odds that The Mayor will attend said Phish concert
