Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Bernier is 6-1-0 against the Nashville Predators all-time. His save percentage in those seven games? An incredible .930. His goals-against average? An amazing 2.00. But, for the second time this season, the Kings opted for Jonathan Quick instead.
It would come back to bite them, yet again.
The 16th consecutive sellout at Bridgestone Arena saw the Predators extend their win streak to four games thanks to a 3-0 shutout victory over the defending Stanley Cup Champions.
Quick is now 1-5-2 against the Predators in his career.
Back-to-back Vezina Trophy finalist Pekka Rinne was outstanding, stopping 32 shots en route to his fourth win of the year. He’s now 4-2-3 and has allowed a goal or less in each of his last four contests.
“It was not pretty tonight,” captain Shea Weber said. “But we found a way to score some goals and just battle through it. Pekka made some great save throughout the game.”

Last night on my blog I wrote "Trade Coming?" and 7 hours later, the Kings got a defenseman.
Because Willie Mitchell suddenly has a case of "I don't feel like playing." He was cleared to play weeks ago, but hasn't, and apparently settled a "setback" in his rehabilitation process.
The Keaton Ellerby trade is nice. It means the Kings...
