Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Predators, November 25

Weber Shea Nashville Predators NHLLast season, each contest in the Kings-Predators three-game season series was decided by one goal. David Legwand potted a pair of goals for Nashville in one of those games and Slava Voynov scored the first goal in game one. Neither of those players will factor in Tuesday’s contest, as the former is in Ottawa now and the latter has been suspended by the league. Both clubs have outstanding goaltending and superb defense. Darryl Sutter’s club seems to save their offense outburst for the playoffs, while Music City’s favorite team appears to have opened things up about this season under new coach Peter Laviolette.

What will go down when they meet on the ice, you ask? Joining us for this edition of our Puck Probability series is Joshua Cooper, former Preds beat writer now working with Yahoo’s Puck Daddy. Get ready for some fun, as these are some things we think just might happen…

Odds by MayorsManor:

3:1 – Anze Kopitar, who has posted 12 points (four goals, eight assists) in 15 career games at Bridgestone Arena, will score the only regulation goal for Los Angeles.

5:1 – Trevor Lewis, who matched his season-high of six shots on goal last Thursday vs. Carolina, and then recorded zero against Dallas on Saturday, will have three shots in the second period… and be off the top line by the third period.

8:1 – Shea Weber, pictured, will play more minutes than Drew Doughty.

15:1 – Andy Andreoff will play… and record less than six minutes of total ice time.

27:1 – Alec Martinez will take three penalties in the game.

Odds by Joshua Cooper:

1:1 – Pekka Rinne will make some sort of mind-blowing save.

6:1 – James Neal or Filip Forsberg will rip a one-timer pass from Mike Ribeiro.

10:1 – One of Shea Weber’s shots will be uncorked at over 100 mph. He has been clocked at over 106 mph in the past.

14:1 – The Predators will score on the power play. Their play with the man-advantage has been dreadful this year, hitting at just 14.8 percent.

100-1: The Predators will score nine goals against the Kings. Nashville has hit this franchise-best mark just twice in its history – one time coming last week against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
