Kings Vs. Predators Final Score: Los Angeles Comes Up Short, Loses 2-1

Two nights after Dustin Brown's hat trick helped the Los Angeles Kings to a big 4-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, the offense once again dried up and the Kings found themselves back in the loss column. The hometown Nashville Predators picked up a 2-1 win and the Kings are now 3-5-2 over their last 10 games.

Los Angeles took 31 shots on goal throughout the game but only managed to sneak one past Pekka Rinne. Roman Josi got the Predators on the board in the first period with a goal at 18:27. Patric Hornqvist added the second Nashville goal at 3:52 in the second period, which would be all the Predators would need. The lone Kings goal came at 16:36 of the third period, once again knocked in by Brown, his 18th of the season. Anze Kopitar and Justin Williams had assists on the play.

With the loss, the Kings remain stuck in fourth place in the Pacific Division with 68 points.
