Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Ducks, November 12

Williams goal Game 7 Kings DucksLeave it to The Royal Half to not be able to follow rules. The format has been pretty simple for our Puck Probability series this season – we ask a guest to come on and share five odds with us, things that they think just might happen in a particular game. What does TRH do? He gives us seven items and a few of them are over/unders. Typical.

Yesterday, Jonathan Davis provided several good Kings-Ducks notes in his “Things You Might Not Know” article. Check it out here if you missed it. Then, peruse the information below and see what you think is more likely to happen once the action gets underway at the Honda Center later tonight…

Odds by MayorsManor:

2:1 – Anze Kopitar, who scored his first career NHL goal in Anaheim, will do it again tonight.

15:1 – Captain fight, Dustin Brown v Ryan Getzlaf, late first period.

25:1 – Dustin Penner, in full gear, sneaks on to the ice during warm-ups… and nobody stops him.

31:1 – If it goes to a shootout, Martin Jones will be in net for the Kings.

160:1 – New LA defenseman Jamie McBain scores a goal.

Odds by The Royal Half:

2:1 – Ryan Kesler dives. (NOTE: These odds can be used for any NHL game involving Ryan Kesler, not just tonight’s Kings-Ducks game)

5:2 – I will make a “JASON LABARBERA IS STILL IN THE NHL?!?!” joke. And then I will quietly reflect on the 2006-07 season when LA Kings fans were upset that LaBarbera couldn’t be called up from Manchester because some other team might try to steal him on waivers since he was the future franchise goalie for the Kings.

Over/Under: 5 – The number of mentions on the NBCSN broadcast that Bruce Boudreau once coached the Manchester Monarchs.

Over/Under: 15 – The number of “That 70s Line” mentions on the NBCSN broadcast.

Over/Under: 50: The number of mentions on Twitter that Dany Heatley once scored 50 goals in 2007. #50in07

20:1 – Corey Perry and Francois Beauchemin will appear as guest stars on this Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead and even those zombies will be frightened by the infections the Ducks’ players are battling.

500:1 – The Anaheim Ducks in-arena music director accidentally plays the theme song to “Too Many Cooks” because he thought it was actually a popular song in the 80s and that’s all they play at the Honda Center. [ed. note: In my opinion, he’s dead wrong on the music there. They don’t play 80s. In fact, along with Phoenix, they are probably one-two in the league for best selection.]
