NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown each had a goal and an assist, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 Tuesday night to wrap up the franchise’s first sweep of a four-game road trip.

Alec Martinez and Wayne Simmonds also had goals as the Kings won the season series with Nashville 3-1. Brown sealed the victory with an empty-netter with 62 seconds left.

Jonathon Blum and J.P. Dumont each scored for Nashville.

The Predators came in trailing fifth-place Los Angeles by only three points in the tight Western Conference, but they snapped a two-game winning streak and missed out on a chance to move from ninth into one of the top eight spots.

Nashville outshot the Kings 32-18 but just couldn’t beat Jonathan Bernier, who has been in net in all four games this season against the Predators.
