Frozen Royalty Audio/Video: Carter’s Hat Trick Leads LA Kings to 5-1 Win Over Nashville

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Carter scored three consecutive goals, recording a natural hat trick, to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 5-1 victory over the Nashville Predators in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,118 fans at Staples Center on March 4.

Although Penner’s post-game grin reminded no one of the Cheshire Cat, he was obviously happy to have finally contributed in a significant way, with two assists against Nashville.

More on that later.

It should not be news to anyone following the Kings that Penner has had a huge target on his back, going almost as far back as when he arrived in Los Angeles after he was acquired at the trade deadline from the Edmonton Oilers last season.

The reason? Poor play, and, quite frankly, that would be putting it mildly.
