NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Pekka Rinne made 30 saves in leading the Nashville Predators to a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.
Roman Josi and Patric Hornqvist scored for Nashville, which has won four of its last five.
Dustin Brown had the lone goal for Los Angeles. The sliding Kings have lost five of six. They had defeated Nashville in their last three trips to Music City.
Rinne's 35 wins this season are a career high and lead the NHL. The Predators have won 17 of their last 21 home games and are 10-0-2 in their last 12.
Josi scored the game's first goal with 1:33 left in the opening period.
From the right point, Josi sent a relatively harmless wrist shot toward the Los Angeles net. As the puck approached goaltender Jonathan Quick, it glanced off the tip of Kings defenseman Drew Doughty's stick and between Quick's pads before trickling across the goal line.
It was the rookie defenseman's fourth goal of the season. He has four points in his last three games....
