NHL: Nashville 2, Los Angeles 1

Feb. 27, 2012 at 10:53 PM   |   Comments

NASHVILLE, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Pekka Rinne turned aside 30 shots and David Legwand assisted on both Nashville goals Monday in the Predators' 2-1 win over Los Angeles.

Rinne improved to an NHL-best 35-13-7 overall and 16-2-3 since Jan. 7 with the performance, the Predators' fourth win in five games.

Legwand helped out on Roman Josi's first-period goal and on Patric Hornqvist's 18th of the season in the middle frame for Nashville.

The Kings scored with 3 1/2 minutes to go in the game when Dustin Brown got credit for a goal that bounced off several players before getting past Rinne, but that was all the closer Los Angeles would get.

Jonathan Quick absorbed the hard-luck loss, stopping 26-of-28 shots as the Kings remained two points out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
