Tanner Pearson scored 1:18 into overtime, and the Los Angeles Kings beat the Nashville Predators 2-1 Saturday night to wrap up their seven-game road trip with a victory.

Jake Muzzin also scored for the Kings, and goalie Jonathan Quick made 33 saves. The Kings finished this road trip at 3-3-1 after going 0-2-1 in their previous three games.

Ryan Ellis scored a power-play goal for Nashville, though the Predators went 1 of 6 with the man advantage. Nashville also fell to 1-10 during overtime this season. Pekka Rinne made 28 saves.

This was the eighth straight game between these teams decided by one goal. Los Angeles has taken the first two games of the three-game season series.

The Kings played without Anze Kopitar, who missed his first game since leaving Thursday night's 2-1 overtime loss at St. Louis with a lower-body injury.
