Nashville Predators 41-21-8
Los Angeles Kings 33-25-12
The Nashville Predators continue their trip through most of the Pacific Division on Saturday night when they visit the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings, like the Sharks and Coyotes before them, are fighting for a playoff spot in the Western Conference so Nashville is likely to be facing a desperate, albeit tired, team at Staples Center.
Friday, the Kings played at the Honda Center in Anaheim when they faced off against the Ducks, Nashville’s Sunday opponent. Los Angeles jumped out to an early 3-0 lead against the Ducks and were able to hold on for the 4-2 win, their third win in a row.
Jonathan Quick started in goal on Friday night in Anaheim for the Kings. While it is possible he could play in back-to-back games, Jonathan Bernier could be given the start over the Kings number one netminder because of his solid record against Nashville.
