A third game in four nights arrives this evening for the Nashville Predators in Los Angeles (at 9:30 p.m. CT).
The Predators (6-5-2) re-entered the win column last night with a 5-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks. Goaltender Pekka Rinne made 35 saves and winger Viktor Arvidsson recorded the game-winner on the power play.
Los Angeles (10-2-1) ranks among the League's best and have won four of their last five. The Preds have picked up at least a point in their previous six games (3-0-3) in La La Land.

Scott Hartnell - Ryan Johansen - Viktor Arvidsson
Filip Forsberg - Colton Sissons - Craig Smith
Kevin Fiala - Calle Jarnkrok - Pontus Aberg
Cody McLeod - Frederick Gaudreau - Austin Watson
Roman Josi - Mattias Ekholm
