Kings hope to extend winning streak to five

Nashville (8-7-1) at Los Angeles (7-6-2), 10:30 p.m. EST

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Kings have bounced back

nicely from a five-game losing streak.

Los Angeles looks to extend its winning streak to five games

when it hosts the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

The Kings, who have finished near or at the bottom of the league

the past couple seasons, has not won five straight games since

February 11-March 7, 2006.

Michal Handzus, Jarret Stoll and defenseman Kyle Quincey each

scored for Los Angeles in Thursday's 3-2 victory over the Dallas

Stars, completing a home-and-home sweep.

The Kings, who ranked last in the Western Conference in

goals-allowed last season, also seem to have found a goaltender

in Erik Ersberg. The Swede has started five consecutive games

and is 4-0-1, yielding 10 goals in that span.

Nashville has won two straight after a three-game slide and is

coming off a 4-3 overtime victory at the Anaheim Ducks on

Friday. Defenseman Dan Hamhuis had the game-winner at 2:17 of

overtime.

The Predators defeated the Kings on October 25, 5-4.
