ST. LOUIS — The Buffalo Sabres fell behind in the first minute Sunday night and not much happened after that for the first 40 minutes. But the continued strong work of goaltender Robin Lehner and some big offense from Evan Rodrigues got them even.

DETROIT -- The Buffalo Sabres had just 10 shots on goal through two periods Friday night. Not a recipe for success.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- That ugly 0-fer is off Phil Housley's resume as an NHL head coach. And it's gone from the Buffalo Sabres' win column in the standings as well.

LOS ANGELES -- Drew Doughty's goal with exactly two minutes left -- Los Angeles' third power-play goal of the night -- snapped a tie Saturday night and sent the Kings to a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres before a sellout crowd of 18,230 in Staples Center.
