Puck Probability: Odds for Canucks at Kings, November 8

Miller Ryan Canucks NHL MayorsManorFrom Drew Doughty to Justin Williams, and throughout the Kings lineup, there used to be a tremendous amount of hate for the Vancouver Canucks – and the player’s didn’t hide it. Now, with two Stanley Cups under their belt and without Max Lapierre and his horrible chirping efforts gone from B.C., we’re not so sure the venom is still set to 10. Things may have cooled off just a bit. Regardless, the Canucks are trying to stay relevant in the Pacific Division and the Kings are trying to – well, just win a game.

What might happen tonight, you ask? We can help. Below are the latest notes from our Puck Probability series, and joining us as a special guest for today’s article is Harrison Mooney, a well-known Canucks writer for the Vancouver Sun. Take a look at what we’ve come up with…

Odds by MayorsManor:

6:1 – Linden Vey will score a goal… then take a selfie with Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli before posting it to Twitter.

8:1 – Drew Doughty will lose his mind in the third period and take a double minor.

15:1 – With Jarret Stoll in the penalty box, Brad Richardson scores a power play goal… then skate over to Jarret Stoll and yells, “In Your Face” …to which Stoll will just shrug his shoulders at and laugh as he skates away shaking his head.

31:1 – Martin Jones starts in goal for the Kings

130:1 – John Tortorella will be shown sitting in a luxury box with Bruce McNall watching the game.

Odds by Harrison Mooney:

2:1 – The Canucks will get more power play goals. Vancouver’s man advantage was a dumpster fire last season under John Tortorella, in large part because they didn’t practice it. (It’s the same reason I can’t play the piano. Damn you, John Tortorella!) This year, however, they’ve got it working again. They’re converting 22.4% of the time, good for 7th in the NHL. The Kings are scoring just 12.8% of the time. So I’d put money on the Canucks’ power play coming out on top.

3:1 – Henrik and Daniel Sedin will both record a point, mostly by virtue of the fact that they pass the puck between one another about seventy times before anybody shoots.

4:1 – The team leading after two periods will win the game. One of my favourite things to track is the ever-dwindling list of teams with an 1.000 winning percentage when leading after two periods. There are only 12 teams left, and the Canucks and Kings are among them. Chances are a third period lead is safe in this one.

5:1 – At some point, cameras will capture Alex Burrows shouting unintelligible Frenglish at Mike Richards.

10:1 – Ryan Miller will make a save, and Vancouver fans, who have never heard of having a moderate opinion on their starting goaltender, will storm the ice to hug and kiss him.
