Preds end skid, beat Kings 2-1 in 8-round shootout

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Sergei Kostitsyn scored in the eighth shootout round, and the Nashville Predators snapped their three-game skid with a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.
 
Pekka Rinne made 23 saves and stopped five of Los Angeles' eight shootout attempts as the Predators survived a weak offensive performance thanks to their Finnish goalie's sturdiness and a timely shot by Kostitsyn, who finally ended the lengthy shootout.
 
Captain Dustin Brown scored his first goal of the season for the Stanley Cup champions, who are off to a 2-2-2 start.
 
Jonathan Quick stopped 13 shots for the Kings, whose NHL-worst power play went 1 for 6 while Nashville and Los Angeles slogged through a largely dull game between two of the NHL's lowest-scoring teams.
