Kings beat Predators 5-1 with Carter's hat trick, Bernier's 5th straight win

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jeff Carter completed his fifth career hat trick with two goals in a 19-second span of the third period, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Nashville Predators 5-1 on Monday night despite taking only 16 shots on net.

Jonathan Bernier made 18 saves and has won five consecutive starts for the first time in his NHL career, equaling his entire win total from last season in 16 games. The five-year veteran didn't play at all during the Kings' Stanley Cup championship run as Jonathan Quick captured the Conn Smythe Trophy as post-season MVP.

Mike Richards and Dwight King also scored during a four-goal third period and defenceman Slava Voynov had a career-high three assists.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
