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.
