Puck Probability: Odds for Blues at Kings, December 18

STL TarasenkoNo, the Kings and Blues aren’t starting another seven-game playoff series, it only feels that way. Later tonight, they will close out their two-game home-and-home series with a matchup at Staples Center. Will the Kings come from ahead to lose again, like they did on Tuesday? That answer won’t be known for several more hours.

In the meantime, we’ve brought in St. Louis beat writer Norm Sanders to help us lay some odds on the game. Below are a handful of things each of us think just might take place in the rematch…

450:1 – Jamie McBain scores a pair of goals.

Odds by Norm Sanders:

2:1 – New Blues goalie Martin Brodeur joins pal Wayne Gretzky for VIP watch party of the special reunion release of Disney’s “The Mighty Ducks.”
