Germany: Sabres def Kings 4-2 – postgame notes and video

After a week long stay in Europe, the Kings will now return to the U.S. sporting a 1-1 record. They lost to the Buffalo Sabres 4-3 in Berlin, Germany earlier today. Here are some post-games notes and video highlights.

- Anze Kopitar scored both of the Kings goals, he now has three total on the young season.

- Jonathan Bernier is now 0-2 vs. the Sabres in his career. Ironically, he gave up four goals in both games.

- Math with Jack: Jack Johnson was one the ice for four of the goals scored in the game – Buffalo’s second and third goals, plus both of LA’s goals. Because Kopitar’s first goal was on the power play, Johnson finished the night with a minus-1.

- Johnson and Alec Martinez were each credited with four blocked shots. Kopitar had three.

- Parse Watch Continues: Scott Parse had 17 shifts in 12:06 of total ice time, no shots on goal.

- The Kings outshot the Sabres 33-26. Kopitar led all Kings with five shots on goal, four each for Mike Richards and Justin Williams.

- Ethan Moreau, Drew Doughty and Matt Greene led the Kings with two hits each. Dustin Brown, who is usually among the leaders, wasn’t credited with a single hit in the game.

- LA was 1-for-3 on the power play and killed off 3-of-4 when short handed.

- Doughty’s 28:45 of ice time was again (like yesterday) nearly five minutes more than the next player on the Kings, Kopitar with 24:34.

- Three stars of the game: Luke Adam (#1), Thomas Vanek (#2), Kopitar (#3). Adam scored Buffalo’s first two goals and was the AHL rookie of the year last season, making him a viable Calder candidate this year in the NHL.
