Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Blues, December 16

Pietrangelo Blues NHLIf you’re talking Kings-Blues, you’re likely to bring up their recent playoff battles before getting too deep into the conversation. You also have teams captained by American-born players in Dustin Brown and David Backes. St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock would also most likely add that his guy, Alex Pietrangelo, is worth mentioning – alongside Drew Doughty – if you’re bringing up who are the top three defensemen in the NHL.

Either way, to help lay some odds on what might go down under the arch tonight, we’ve brought in Jonathan Davis, who co-hosts a show on NHL Network Radio you’ve probably heard about and writes for various hockey publications. Below are a handful of things each of us think just might take place…

Odds by MayorsManor:

1:1 – Just prior to puck drop, the Kings will officially unveil their 2015 Stadium Series jersey and will look very much like the one we leaked almost two weeks ago.

2:1 – Drew Doughty will score a power play goal.

7:1 – The game will end in a shootout.

15:1 – In his post-game press conference, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock will discuss his concerns with the corners at Staples Center.

100:1 – Dwight King will record a hat trick.

Odds by Jonathan Davis:

25:1 – Martin Brodeur gets hurt in warm ups and the Blues sign former goalie and current team analyst, Darren Pang to be the emergency back up.

5:1 – New York natives Dustin Brown and Kevin Shattenkirk drop the gloves over which is the best New York pizza joint.

15:1 – The game goes to a shootout and the league gives T.J. Oshie special approval to take all the shots for St. Louis in the shootout.

55:1 Jonathan Quick stops all shootout attempts by T.J. Oshie

2:1 – The beat LA chants start in the first period from the St. Louis faithful

1:1 – Steve Ott trash talks atleast 5 Kings players
