Los Angeles Kings 5, Nashville Predators 4 Bridgestone Arena; Nashville, Tennessee March 6, 2012 *** LEFTOVER THOUGHTS: * Brandon Yip, Matt Halischuk, Brian McGrattan and Jack Hillen were Nashville’s healthy scratches tonight. * Preds defenseman Kevin Klein (upper body injury) was also scratched. * Ryan Ellis was in the Nashville lineup for the first time since February 19. * Coming into the night, David Legwand had seven points in his last seven games. * The Kings beat out an icing call in each of the first two periods. Ellis was the victim in the opening frame and then Francis Bouillon couldn’t make up enough ground in the second. * This was the third consecutive game (and fourth of the their last five) in which  Los Angeles scored at least four goals. * This was Anders Lindback‘s first appearance in front of the home town fans since December 3. * Tuesday night was the fifth game in which Rinne was pulled in favor of Lindback this season. * It was also the latest Lindback has come...

One more thing: Will Tootoo face suspension?

With 6:41 remaining in the third period of last night’s 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, Predators forward Jordin Tootoo received a 10-minute misconduct for shoving an official.

Significance of playing at home is “huge” for Nashville

One word was repeated when the Predators were asked about the significance of the team’s current three-game homestand: huge. Eight points back of first place St. Louis Blues, the Predators are only four points ahead of sixth place Chicago. “It is huge. Everytime you are at home it is important, especially now with the playoff race coming down to the wire with teams being so...

Predators’ rink starting to fill itself on its own

According to On the Forecheck’s Dirk Hoag, the Nashville Predators are very happy to report that team’s finally starting to sell out Bridgestone Arena, or reach near-sellout status, while giving away fewer and fewer tickets while also charging a bit more for the tickets the team’s selling to the general public: “Fill the building. Nothing happens until the building’s filled...

“Desperate” Kings take advantage of lackluster Predators…

With a victory tonight, Pekka Rinne would break Tomas Vokoun‘s franchise record for wins in a single season. Not only did he not topple the record but he didn’t even finish the game. The Los Angeles Kings brought their A-game into Bridgestone Arena and barely beat a Nashville Predators squad, 5-4, that only brought their C-game. Rinne made just 19 saves on 24 shots in the loss...

Kings Return to Nashville with a Vengeance: Down Predators 5-4

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via Getty Images) It was a hungrier team that won on Tuesday night in front of a sellout crowd of 17,113 at Bridgestone Arena. A night of playing catch-up to the Kings proved to be the Predators downfall as they could not muster enough defensive effort to shut down the Kings dangling offensive drive. On a night that saw Nashville get free frostys (first...

Matthew Barry: It's Getting Harder and Harder to Support This Franchise

During the broadcast of the Kings dash for the playoffs, Bob Miller interviewed Jack Johnson. "When I came here they changed the way I played and I didn't really want to do that. It took me a while to learn. Since I've been traded, they let me play the way I want to play." Jack Johnson's goal beat the Kings tonight. I wonder if Anze Kopitar feels the...

Jeff Carter Returns To Columbus

from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider, He isn’t likely to get a warm welcome from the Blue Jackets faithful tomorrow night, but after today’s practice, Carter spoke at length about his return to the city and gave his thoughts about his time with the Blue Jackets… Question: There’s a segment of the (Columbus) fan base, as you know, that has the opinion that you never really...

Paul McCann: TN High School Hockey's Frozen Four is Tonight!

Sloppy, unfocused, undisciplined. All could describe last night’s wild 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the Predators first home regulation loss since very early January. While the Predators were able to keep LA’s top line off the scoresheet, the combo of Justin Williams and Trevor Lewis was too much for Nashville to handle… Next up is the Colorado Avalanche tomorrow...

VIDEO: Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson enjoy a kiss on the LA Kings “Kiss Cam”

This is much cuter than the time Madonna was featured on the Kiss Cam and she made out with her over-inflated sense of self worth. The Los Angeles Kings are just one of many pro teams that employ the Kiss Cam during breaks in the action, probably because it’s cheap, fun, and the fans seem to get a kick out of it.  So it only makes sense that when a Hollywood power couple like...
