Puck Probability: Odds for Kings at Canadiens, December 12

Habs MontrealNow that you have already read Jonathan Davis’ pre-game article, listing five things you may not know about the Kings-Canadiens match-up (click here if you missed it), we’re here with the latest offering in our Puck Probability series.

In tonight’s game, the Kings will again take on an Eastern Conference club, meaning a group they don’t play very often. That said, there is always something special for L.A. when they meet up with the Habs. Call it the Hockey Night in Canada impact, the Original Six factor, or call it what it is – nostalgia from the 1993 Stanley Cup Final.

Whatever you attribute it to; this isn’t just some run-of-the-mill Friday night tilt. To help lay some odds on what might go down, we’ve brought in Lyle Richardson of Spector’s Hockey to share in the prognostications. Below are a handful of things each of us think just might take place…

Odds by MayorsManor:

2:1 –The 1993 Stanley Cup Final is mentioned a minimum of 20 times on the FSW broadcast.

4:1 – Kyle Clifford will have two fights in the game.

11:1 – Anze Kopitar scores on the power play.

14:1 – Jonathan Quick has fewer than 10 saves in the second period.

22:1 – Brayden McNabb plays less than six minutes total.

300:1 –Dustin Brown plays the entire game on the top line.

Odds by Lyle Richardson:

2:1 – Canadiens coach Michel Therrien shakes up his lines during the game (Let’s just say it’s become a subject of irritation for Habs fans).

3:1 – Goaltender Carey Price faces 30-plus shots (as he has in 12 games thus far this season).

5:1 – Defenseman P.K. Subban makes a dazzling play and takes a dumb penalty (He’s second on the Habs in PIMs this season)

6:1 – Call-up Sven Andrighetto stretches his two-game points streak to three.

9:1 – P.A. Parenteau, who leads the Habs in shootout goals, scores in a shootout.

15:1 – The Habs anemic power play (currently 24th overall) scores a goal.

30:1 – Manny Malholtra collects his first point of the season.

50:1 – The Canadiens outshoot the Kings (Habs are 27th in shots per game).
