In front of another sellout crowd on Saturday night, the Kings out shot the visiting Predators 27-21, out hit them 30-35 and most importantly beat them on the scoreboard 4-2. Paced by goals from Anze Kopitar, Dustin Penner, Dwight King and Kyle Clifford, they’ve now won four in a row for only the second time this […]
The Kings will try to win their fourth game in a row tonight, something they’ve only done one other time all season. Standing in front of them will be a Nashville Predators team that is 6-2-2 in their last 10 games and is 29-3-4 when they score first. However, if the Preds opponent nets the […]
Tonight will mark the third time the Kings have seen the Predators in less than three weeks.
The first game came in Nashville on the night of the NHL Trade Deadline and the Kings fell short, losing 2-1 – in spite of out-shooting the Predators 31-28. Then, the Kings returned to Music City just a week […]
Trevor Lewis and Music City, they just seem to go hand-in-hand.
Nicknamed Elvis, due to both guys sharing the same birthday (January 8th), Lewis made a rare appearance on the score sheet Tuesday night.
Entering the game vs. Nashville, he had only three points on the season (two goals and one assist). But, after assisting on Matt […]
Last week, the Kings traveled to Nashville, outshot the Predators 31-28 and still came away with a 2-1 loss. Revenge isn’t the top priority for LA captain Dustin Brown at the moment though.

Jarret Stoll and Kyle Clifford had some weird – um, chemistry – last night.
They were both on the ice to start the game and Stoll took an interference penalty 25 seconds in, forcing Clifford to sit and watch while the Kings killed off the Nashville power play.
Coach Terry Murray put the same line out to […]
With two assists last night, Jarret Stoll doubled his output for the season…and reached a milestone, his 300th NHL point.
It was a ‘team win,’ with four different players scoring goals and several guys having breakout performances.
After the game, Stoll shared a few thoughts…
On the overall game – “We played a little bit desperate. We […]
Alec Martinez was recalled by the Kings on November 24th last season and scored a goal in his NHL season debut. He came into last night having played 13 games this season without a point.
Earlier this season, coach Terry Murray even had him sit out the game in Philadelphia, marking him down as a […]
Jonathan Bernier has played twice as many games against the Nashville Predators as he has versus any other NHL team – including starting all four games between the Kings and Predators last season, posting a 3-1-0 record with a 2.25 goals-against average.
This season, Bernier was off to another slow start, losing the only two games […]
Following Nashville’s 4-3 loss to Los Angeles tonight, here are a few quotes from their head coach Barry Trotz, forward Craig Smith and Patric Hornqvist…
COACH BARRY TROTZ:
On overall game – “We weren’t disciplined enough, we took some bad penalties. We battled back, but it wasn’t good enough…I give us some credit, we stayed in […]
