Johansen, Neal lead Predators over Kings

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Ryan Johansen had a goal and two assists to lead the Nashville Predators to a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.

James Neal added a goal and an assist for the Predators, winners in three of their last four. Mike Fisher, Filip Forsberg and Roman Josi also scored.

Forsberg's goal made him a 30-goal scorer for the first time in his career. He's the first Predator to hit the mark since 2010.

Tanner Pearson had a goal and an assist, and Alec Martinez also scored for the Kings, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

Neal scored the game's first goal at 7:37 of the second period.

In the left circle inside the Los Angeles zone, Johansen won a faceoff back to Neal at the top of the circle, where he immediately fired a shot low to the far side that just slid past the outstretched left leg of Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.
