First period: Kings 0, Predators 0

The Kings didn’t get their first shot on net until Dwight King’s backhander from the right wing at the 15-minute, 26-second mark of the opening period Monday. Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne turned that shot and two others aside in a period that required very little heavy lifting. Jonathan Bernier started in goal for the Kings and needed to make only five saves to keep the Predators scoreless.
