Kings get the road treatment for second night in a row
For the second-straight night, the Los Angeles Kings are clearly the enemy -- at least in the mind of the home fans.

Saturday night, in the 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere game against the Buffalo Sabres at the O2 World Arena in Berlin, the Sabres are the clear favorites, likely because of the two Germans -- Christian Ehrhoff and Jochen Hecht -- on the roster, as well as Austrian Tomas Vanek. Ehrhoff and Vanek were in the starting lineiup, while Hecht missed the game with an upper-body injury.

Before the game even started, the fans at the sold-out arena were already chanting "Let's Go Buffalo"

Friday night, the Kings played the New York Rangers in Stockholm and had to face national team hero Henrik Lundqvist in the net for the rangers.

In this game, the Kings face Ryan Miller, who played last night in Helsinki. For Los Angeles, Jonathan Bernier gets his first start of the season.
Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
