TRH RECAP 39: Same Old, Same Gold
KINGS 2, PREDATORS 3
The holiday break couldn’t come quickly enough for a team caught in the middle of a one-game losing streak.
Coming off a 5-2 loss at home to the Dallas Stars, the LA Kings were setting off on a roadtrip that would take them into 2014.
First up was a matchup with the pesky Nashville Predators.
A look at the standings would suggest this would be a walk in the park for the Kings, but we all know what that means…
LA Kings vs teams currently in a playoff position: 11-3-2 .750 win percentage LA Kings vs. non-playoff teams: 14-6-2 .681 win percentage

Welp, let’s see if the Kings were somehow able to right their ship.
Kings vs. Preds tonight! I like both teams so this is gonna be a tough one!

Heading to the Old Spaghetti Factory in Nashville then to see the Predators play the LA Kings. Tomorrow, Titans vs. Texans.
