NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Justin Williams scored twice to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-4 victory over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.
Drew Doughty, Matt Greene, and Trevor Lewis also scored to help Los Angeles win its third straight.
Patric Hornqvist scored twice and Martin Erat and Sergei Kostitsyn had the other goals for Nashville, loser of two of its last three.
With the score tied 3-3 after two periods, Greene put the Kings ahead at 1:15 of the third on a slap shot from the right point. Lewis had a tap in from just off the left post at 3:00 to make it 5-3.
Hornqvist's 20th of the season pulled the Predators within one with 5:18 to go.
Williams has 15 goals on the season, and three in his last three games. He has five points in three games against Nashville this season.
Predators goalie Pekka Rinne was removed after Lewis scored. The NHL's leader in goaltending victories gave up five goals on the 24 shots he faced and was replaced by backup Anders Lindback.
