Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Wild, November 26

Parise Wild NHLLos Angeles and Minnesota have split the last six games played, with each side winning three. All but the first game in that set have been decided by just one goal. Further, there has been at least one shootout between the teams in each of the last four seasons. To keep that streak alive, they’ll either need one tonight or when they meet up again next March. When the clubs faced off in October, it was Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson scoring for the Kings, along with the unlikely Matt Cooke for the Wild.

What will go down in the rematch, you’re wondering? Joining us for this edition of our Puck Probability series is Sean Leahy of Yahoo’s Puck Daddy. Buckle up, as several of the following things just might happen…

Odds by MayorsManor:

2:1 – A Minnesota player will take a run at Dustin Brown, as they’re still upset about the elbow to Jason Pominville.

6:1 – Jake Muzzin will score a third period goal.

24:1 – Matching his game-tying goal at the 2010 Olympics with just 24 seconds remaining in regulation of the gold medal game, Zach Parise, pictured, will score in the final minute to tie the game vs. LA and send things to overtime.

50:1 – Darryl Sutter will be wearing a red and green tie, continuing the trend from last night, where he wore a Predators themed yellow tie.

400:1 – If the game is still tied after overtime, Dwight King will be used in the shootout.

Odds by Sean Leahy:

3:1 – Ryan Suter fails to record a point should he play 30-plus minutes. He has one point in five games he’s been on the ice for at least half the game.

5:1 – Jason Pominville and Mikko Koivu record at least a point. Pominville has 11 points in 12 career games versus the Kings, while Koivu has 24 in 28 in his career.

20:1 – The Wild take advantage of the Kings playing the second game of a back-to-back and win. LA is 1-2 in the second game of a back-to-backs this season, losing their last two.

75:1 – The Kings score a first period goal. No team has allowed less goals in the opening 20 minutes than the Wild, who have seen the red light turned on against them just seven times in first periods this season.

100:1 – Minnesota scores a power play goal. They’ve been terrible with the man advantage this season, scoring on just 9.2-percent of their opportunities.
