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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
