Sabres, Kings scoreless after one
After one period, the score between the Los Angeles Kings and Buffalo Sabres remains 0-0.

Buffalo received the first power play of the game, but it came at a heavy price as Jarret Stoll of the Kings earned a two-minute roughing penalty after crashing hard into Christian Ehrhoff along the wall in the Buffalo defensive zone.

It took Ehrhoff more than a minute to get up and he headed directly to the Buffalo dressing room.

Ehrhoff, a German, has drawn the loudest cheers throughout Saturday's first period. 

To make Matters worse, Buffalo could not capitalize on the power play, managing just a pair of shots.
Soon after its expiration, Justin Williams had two of the best chances in the first period, forcing Ryan Miller to make pad saves on his initial shot and a rebound.

Then, in the last minute of the first period, Thomas Vanek took an interference penalty, much to the ire of the crowd, which also strongly supported the Austrian forward. The Kings' power-play advantage will carry into the second period.

After one period, Los Angeles holds a 12-9 advantage in shots.

Quote of the Day

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
