  The Nashville Predators (6-5-2) faceoff against the Los Angeles Kings (9-5-0) Saturday night in their second of three meetings this season.   The Predators look to rebound from a tough loss in overtime against Phoenix on Thursday.  Los Angeles will be without Jeff Carter tonight.  That’s a huge blow for the Kings.  They have struggled scoring goals this season, only averaging 2.6 goals per game.  That means the Predators need to do their best to capitalize.    TV/RADIO COVERAGE Nashville: 102.5 The Game, Fox Sports Tennessee  Los Angeles: Fox Sports West, KPTR AM 1450 Stream (Do not click on any ads because they will download viruses) http://livetv.ru/en/eventinfo/195135_nashville_los_angeles/uses) Listen Online SEASON SERIES  The Kings won the first Meeting 2-1 in Overtime.
