Los Angeles Kings 2015-16 Regular Season:
Game 72 @ Nashville, March 21, 2016, 5pm PST
Fresh off clinching a playoff spot, the Los Angeles Kings turn their attention to the 36-23-13 Nashville Predators, who they face for the third and final time this regular season.
Each of the previous two meetings this season have gone to overtime with the Kings winning on both occasions. First, Jeff Carter won it on Halloween night in Los Angeles and Tanner Pearson netted the winner in Nashville on Feb. 20. The silver-and-black will hope for the three-peat this time.
For the Kings, Kris Versteeg is day-to-day after blocking a shot late in Saturday’s game vs. Boston while Anze Kopitar enters Monday’s contest riding a five-game point streak. He also has 13 points (six goals, seven assists) in his last 10 games. But it will not be easy continuing said streak against netminder Pekka Rinne who is 9-1-2 in his last 12 starts which includes a .937 save percentage over that stretch.
The Kings enter Monday looking for the series sweep. Can they do it? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Enjoy the game!
