Kings-Nashville Preview: Hey, There's Also Hockey Tonight

Since we last met the Nashville Predators...

IN: Hal Gill, Brandon Yip, Gabriel Bourque, Francis Bouillon

OUT: Jonathon Blum, Brian McGrattan (upper body)

In limbo: Andrei Kostitsyn and Paul Gaustad won't be in the lineup yet.

The Nashville Predators are a terrible possession team who ride a hot power play. If they take a lead, they'll fall into a shell and rely on their defense and Pekka Rinne to survive the onslaught. While they've had a fair dose of luck over this season, no Trotz-coached team is to be taken lightly.

The Kings' lineup should remain the same. Positives to take away from the game against the Blackhawks: Stoll and Penner played well. Carter and Richards saw the most time against Kane and Sharp. Willie Mitchell and Slava Voynov handled Hossa's line. And Brown was an alpha beast.

They need more of that. Go new forward lines!
