LOS ANGELES, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown scored in the first period Saturday and the Los Angeles Kings cruised to a 4-1 win over Nashville.
The pair also contributed one assist apiece in Los Angeles' sixth straight home win to start the season. The last time Kings accomplished that was in 1980-81 when they went 7-0 at home to begin the year.
The Predators got their lone goal from Shane O'Brien in absorbing their fourth straight loss.
Nashville goalie Pekka Rinne stopped 18-of-22 shots before being lifted for Anders Lindback, who finished up the game with nine saves.
