Puck Probability: Odds for Panthers at Kings, November 18

FLA - Luongo RobertoEven if you’re only halfway paying attention, you already know that Willie Mitchell is returning to Staples Center tonight and that’s one of the many key storylines to follow. We know you guys thought. You’re looking for more. With that in mind, we’ve asked George Richards of the Miami Herald News to join us for today’s Puck Probability article. Together, we’ll set the table for the game with a few things we think just might happen…

Odds by MayorsManor:

3:2 If Dave Bolland scores, Kings PA announcer Dave Joseph will have tons more energy than normal when announcing the visiting team’s goal… Because, after all, nobody loves Dave Bolland more than DJ.

4:1 – Dustin Brown will record three points playing on the fourth line with Mike Richards and Kyle Clifford.

6:1 – Roberto Luongo will knee Brown… then later tweet it wasn’t payback, but rather a moral victory.

12:1 – Brayden McNabb will be credited with eight hits.

33:1 – Willie Mitchell draws a penalty against Drew Doughty in the first period, when the Kings blueliner elbows, trips, or interferes with the Panthers captain.

60:1 – Tanner Pearson will record a Gordie Howe hat trick.

Odds by George Richards:

5:2 – Jimmy ‘Mays’ Hayes gives the Panthers a 1-0 lead. He’s done so in two of the past three games.

1:1 – Roberto Luongo returns to net after taking the night off Sunday in Anaheim.

2:1 – Willie Mitchell has to choke back his emotions when introduced to the Staples Center crowd Tuesday night. Mitchell, all but assured to be in the starting lineup, gets his ring from Dean Lombardi before the game.

4:1 – The low-scoring Panthers will score at least three on the Kings. Florida has three-plus goals in their past four games including the six put up in Anaheim on Sunday.

8:1 – Florida goes back to its low-scoring ways. The Panthers scored two or less in 10 of their first 11 games.

25:1 – The Panthers arrive late and Tuesday’s game is delayed because of a freeway closure. Florida’s bus got stuck in a major traffic jam on the way to the arena from its hotel last year but CHP was called and the team got out of it.

100:1 – Center Nick Bjugstad arrives at Staples Center sporting a Minneapolis Lakers jersey. A former prep Mr. Hockey in Minnesota, Bjugstad spent three seasons with the Gophers before heading south to Florida.
