The view from Nashville - LA Kings Insider

The Tennessean

Predators’ skid complicating playoff path

“Scoring the first goal also hasn’t helped, with Nashville, which has a 19-3-7 record when doing so, striking first against Montreal on March 2, Anaheim on Tuesday and Los Angeles on Thursday. The Predators trailed for a combined nine seconds against those three teams, ending up with two of a possible six points (0-1-2).”

Iginla gets 2nd goal in OT, leads Kings past Predators 3-2

“After the Predators were whistled for too many men on the ice with 2:24 to play, Iginla skated in low and roofed a shot over Pekka Rinne, who made 31 saves. Just like that, Iginla had his first multi-goal game since February 2016 with Colorado.”

Roman Josi standing on his own for Predators

“The Predators possess enviable scoring balance. They have nine players with 10 or more goals, led by forward Filip Forsberg, one of the League’s hottest scorers, and forward Viktor Arvidsson, a 23-goal scorer who has been one of this season’s breakout players. But so much of what Nashville does depends upon Josi’s contributions, starting from the back.”

Jarome Iginla lifts Kings past Predators in OT

“Calle Jarnkrok and Kevin Fiala scored for the Predators (32-24-11), who lost their fourth game in a row (0-3-1) and are four points ahead of the Blues for third place in the Central Division. Pekka Rinne had 31 saves.”

Nashville Predators 2, Los Angeles Kings 3 (OT): Loser Point

“Despite a flat start, the Preds got the first goal of the game when Calle Jarnkrok ripped a high wrist shot by Jonathan Quick with about 3 minutes left in the 1st. In a period where the Preds only managed four shots on goal, somehow they entered the first intermission up 1-0. In the 2nd period, noted Pred destroyer Jarome Iginla tied up the game on the power play.”
