Three rounds in the shootout didn’t solve anything. Six rounds? Nope.
Finally, in the eighth round, the Nashville Predators came away with a 2-1 shootout victory over the L.A. Kings Thursday night.
Sergei Kostitsyn scored the fourth goal of the breakaway competition for the Predators, turning Kings goalie Jonathan Quick inside-out with a plethora of moves, eventually going to the forehand.
The win snaps a three-game losing skid for Nashville.
Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean tweeted that Predators goalie Pekka Rinne took “the previous three losses hard.”
Dustin Brown scored his first of the season for the Kings, although head coach Darryl Sutter still isn’t happy with the offensive output of his team.
“We’re still not getting that goal out of players we need to score,” Sutter told the L.A. Times.
“It comes down to details.”
