After dropping the first three games of their season, the Los Angeles Kings seem to have forgotten how to lose.

Los Angeles extended their winning streak to seven games after beating Nashville 4-3 in overtime on Saturday.

Tyler Toffoli is a big reason why the Kings have been so successful of late.

The Kings forward tied the game 2-2 in the second period, and teammate Andy Andreoff ggave the Kings the lead 3:02 later. Preds defenseman Ryan Ellis tied the game almost four minutes later.
