Nashville and Los Angeles collide on Tuesday night at the Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee for a Western Conference tilt. The Kings are playing another season as the defending Stanley Cup champions, while the Predators have opened with 28 points. Nashville is just one point out of first in the Central Division coming into tonight. Los Angeles sits in fourth place in the much more competitive Pacific Division. We are going to back the host Predators as they take down the Kings tonight.
Predators one tough team to beat at home
Nashville has played nine games at home coming into tonight and have a record of 7-1-1 in those games. They are 7-3-0 in their last 10 games played overall and come into this contest following a victory. The Predators are allowing an average of 2.05 goals scored per game, which is good for second in the NHL. They do need to improve on their power play and penalty kill if they want to sustain this success.
Kings cannot be counted out until dethroned as champions
You can never count out the Kings until they are officially dethroned as champions of the league. Los Angeles dominated the New York Rangers in last year’s Stanley Cup Finals to bring home another crown. They have opened this season with 26 points, which puts them in fourth in the Pacific Division standings. The Kings dropped their most recent game, a 5-4 loss to the Dallas Stars, which snapped a three-game winning streak.
