Slumping Kings Allow 5 Straight Goals In 5th Straight Loss
LOS ANGELES (AP) – Patric Hornqvist scored two goals, Colin Wilson had a goal and two assists, and the Nashville Predators rallied for their fourth straight victory, 5-2 over the slumping
Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
Sergei Kostitsyn also had a goal and two assists, and Marek Svatos scored his first goal for the Predators, who sent the Kings to their season-worst fifth straight loss.
Anders Lindback made 24 saves, but gave up second-period goals to Kings rookie Kyle Clifford and Jarret Stoll.
Nashville turned that two-goal deficit into a 3-2 lead during a 5:31 span midway through the period, connecting twice on the power play.
Wilson had a hand in each second-period goal, earning his first three-point game of the season.
