Nashville Predators defeat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1

 

Nashville PredatorsLos Angeles, CA – Just what the doctor ordered.  A big win for the Nashville Predators. 

Tonight in Los Angeles, the Predators did what they needed to do with a 3-1 win over the lackluster Kings. Coming off  of two embarrassing performances of late, the Predators stepped up their energy throughout the game, firing 34 shots on goal and keeping LA goalie Jonathan Quick under fire for most of the night.

Viktor Arvidsson got things started for the Predators at 15:04 of the opening period when Nashville took off on an odd man rush after a Pekka Rinne save on the Nashville net.
