Predators looking to stack wins as Kings visit

A visit from the lowly Los Angeles Kings should give the Nashville Predators a good opportunity to win back-to-back games for the first time in two weeks.

The Kings, meanwhile, will try to end some recent struggles against the Predators and avoid matching their season high with a sixth straight defeat overall Thursday night.

In contention for both the top spot in the Central Division and the Western Conference, Nashville (35-22-5, 75 points) was amid a 1-3-1 stretch before recording a needed 5-3 victory at Dallas on Tuesday. Defenseman Roman Josi scored twice in the third period and also had an assist, while Pekka Rinne made 36 saves in the wild contest.
