Ryan O’Reilly had a goal and an assist for the visiting Nashville Predators in a 2-1 win against the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night.Gustav Nyquist also scored and Juuse Saros made 33 saves for the Predators, who have won six of nine.Drew Doughty scored a power-play goal and David Rittich made 31 saves for the Kings, who have just one win in their past 11 games.The Kings were hoping for a better outcome in the opener of a four-game homestand after going 1-3-2 on the recently concluded six-game road trip, but instead were knocked out of a playoff spot they’ve held all season.O’Reilly gave the Predators a 1-0 lead at 7:56 of the second period.Pierre-Luc Dubois was in the penalty box for tripping Tommy Novak when O’Reilly tipped a point shot from Roman Josi into the net for his 17th goal of the season.It was also the 11th power-play goal of the season for O’Reilly, moving him into third place in the NHL.
