Minnesota recalled F Matt Read from Iowa

BUFFALO Jason Zucker Jersey , N.Y. (AP) Anze Kopitar and the Los Angeles Kings took advantage of the Buffalo Sabres‘ second-period meltdown to snap a three-game skid and keep pace in the tightly contested Western Conference playoff race.Kopitar and rookie Michael Amadio each had two goals in a 4-2 win, which the Kings broke open by scoring three times on consecutive shots over a span of 5:35 on Saturday afternoon.”I think our second period was huge, not just getting the three goals but just dictating the game,” said Kopitar, who upped his team-leading total to 25 goals. ”I thought (today) was a step in the right direction, but we’ve got to continue going.”Article continues below ...Los Angeles improved to 31-22-5 and vaulted into 10th place in the West, a point ahead of the idle Colorado Avalanche.The win was also the Kings’ first in Buffalo since a 4-1 victory on Feb. 21, 2003. Los Angeles had gone 0-6-2 in its previous eight trips to Buffalo, and was 1-12-2 plus a tie in its previous 16 visits dating to the start of the 1993-94 season.”I don’t think we were worried about the 15-year drought in here, but we had a three-game slide that we certainly wanted to stop,” Kopitar said.Frustration boiled over for the Eastern Conference’s last-place Sabres.The press box shook with the loud sound of a door slamming, and Sabres general manager Jason Botterill was spotted leaving the team’s booth shortly after Kopitar scored his first goal to put the Kings up 2-0.Sabres forward Jason Pominville wasn’t surprised upon being informed of what happened.”I would’ve probably done the same thing,” Pominville said of Buffalo’s lackadaisical effort through 40 minutes.”The one thing we control is our effort and the energy we bring,” he said. ”Some nights Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey , we’re just not bringing it. I really don’t get it.”The Sabres didn’t wake up until the third period, when Marco Scandella scored 30 seconds in with a blast from the blue line that sailed over goalie Jonathan Quick’s right shoulder. Then Rasmus Ristolainen scored during a scramble in front with 3:18 left.Quick stopped 33 shots, while Dustin Brown had two assists.Buffalo’s Robin Lehner was yanked after allowing four goals on 30 shots. Chad Johnson finished with six saves in the final period.Kopitar’s first goal summed up Buffalo’s dreadful performance.Sabres forward Benoit Pouliot lost his balance while trying to play the puck just inside Buffalo’s blue line. The puck dribbled to Brown to set up a 2-on-1 break. Brown fed Kopitar, who wound his way across the front of the net and easily deposited a shot into the open right side with 7:58 left in the second period.The Kings scored twice more in a span of 1:29.Kopitar made it 3-0 with 3:54 left. He was set up for a one-timer in the left circle by Alex Iafallo, who beat the Sabres’ defenders to a loose puck behind the Buffalo net.Then, Amadio scored his second when Sabres defenseman Justin Falk got turned around. Amadio stepped around Falk, and snapped a shot inside the right post.The only knock Kings coach John Stevens had was how his team eased up in a third period during which Los Angeles was outshot 18-6.”I thought we kind of got off page a little bit, and they made a big push in the third period that we weren’t ready for,” Stevens said.NOTES: The Sabres are 2-6-1 in their past nine home games and 8-17-4 overall at home. Buffalo’s fewest home wins in an 82-game season is 13, set in 2013-14. … Iafallo was a fan of the Sabres growing up in Eden, New York, just outside Buffalo. Though Iafallo had a large contingent of friends present for his first game at Buffalo, the Kings rookie’s parents weren’t among them. They were instead in Columbus, Ohio Chris Kunitz Jersey Womens , to be with Iafallo’s sister, Juliana, who was being honored as part of Ohio State women’s hockey team’s senior weekend. … Sabres C Ryan O’Reilly entered the day leading the league with 867 faceoff wins.UP NEXTKings: Continue their seven-game trip at the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday night.Sabres: Host the Washington Capitals on Monday afternoon.— DENVER (AP) Fair warning to the rest of the league: As fast and young as the Colorado Avalanche were this season, general manager Joe Sakic vows to make them even faster and younger.It’s become a full-speed-ahead priority.That blend of quickness, youth and skill boosted the Avalanche from the bottom of the league a year ago to a playoff contender this season. Having an MVP candidate like Nathan MacKinnon leading the charge certainly didn’t hurt, either.”We love the way we play the game,” Sakic said a day after the Avs were eliminated from the first round of the postseason by top-seeded Nashville in six games. ”It’s fast. It’s entertaining. It’s exciting.”Few expected this kind of run from a Colorado team that had just 48 points in 2016-17. But youthful energy kept the Avalanche in the playoff chase until the end, where they earned the final postseason spot on the last day of the regular season. Their 47-point turnaround from a season ago matches the fourth-highest year-to-year improvement over a full season in NHL history, according to the team.That bodes well. That is, once the sting of losing to the Predators fades.”We’re going to stay the course and let this team grow because they deserve it,” said Sakic, whose squad was one of the league’s youngest with an average age of 25.8. ”We’re going to stay young and in the next couple of years may even get younger. If we can, even try to get a little bit quicker and faster out there.”The Avalanche fully bought into the message of even-keeled coach Jared Bednar, who will be around two more seasons after Sakic announced Monday he recently agreed to a one-year extension with the former American Hockey League coach.”It’s a cool story that we went from last to the playoffs Womens Luke Kunin Jersey , but we’re trying to win a Cup,” said the 22-year-old MacKinnon, who had 39 goals and 58 assists in the regular season. ”We showed a lot of fight this season. … Hopefully we can use some of that next season.”Things to know about a season in which the Avalanche returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2014:HOME COOKIN’The Avalanche returned the aura back to the Pepsi Center. They won 28 games at home in the regular season, which tied the franchise record held by the 2000-01 squad that captured the Stanley Cup crown.”To see the way this Colorado crowd and the city responded to us was great,” defenseman Erik Johnson said.YOUTHFUL SPIRITThe future is certainly bright with a total of 11 rookies dressing this season. Even more, nine players got their first taste of the postseason.”It was great to get into the playoffs just to feel the different level, where you’ve got to go emotionally and intensity goes up,” Sakic said. ”We can’t take it for granted.”MAC’S OFFENSIVE ATTACKMacKinnon had a season worthy of consideration for the Hart Trophy as league MVP. He led the league in home scoring this season with 67 points (27 goals, 40 assists). That’s tied with Sakic (2000-01) for most in Avalanche history.In addition, MacKinnon’s 284 shots were also the most by an Avalanche player since Sakic (332, `00-01).He was frequently paired with captain Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen, giving them one of the league’s most potent lines.”If you want to bring someone to their first hockey game, you want to bring them to watch Nathan MacKinnon,” Sakic said.HANGIN’ TENColorado had a 10-game winning streak that began with an overtime win over Toronto on Dec. 29 and ended Jan. 23 with a loss at Montreal. It was the second-longest streak in team history.”Great group Marcus Foligno Jersey , fun to coach,” Bednar said. ”It was a good season, a fun season – especially for a lot of our guys who went through probably their worst season, myself included, last year to respond and have a season like this.”INJURIESColorado dealt with its fair share of injuries, including the loss of starting goaltender Semyon Varlamov and Johnson to knee injuries before the playoffs. In the postseason, backup Jonathan Bernier went down. The Avs had to rely on third-stringer Andrew Hammond, who was acquired as part of the three-team trade in November that sent Matt Duchene to Ottawa.”I know we’ll come back stronger,” Landeskog said. ”I’m proud of this team.”—
