Like the Blackhawks game last Saturday, several Kings players and fans circled tonight’s matchup on the calendar when the 2014-15 NHL schedule was released, as this is generally considered a benchmark game. Interestingly, neither club has played up to their full potential thus far.
Regardless, we’re always here to help. And with that in mind, we asked Boston native Jimmy Murphy, host of Top Shelf Radio Show on NHL Network Radio, to join us for this edition of our Puck Probability series. Buckle up, as several of the following things just might happen…
