Adam's pair puts Buffalo up, 2-0
Buffalo strikes first here in Berlin as Luke Adam breaks the scoreless tie on a one-timer. Adam, who was one of the last players to make this team, scored at 3:40 of the second period. He scored again, unassisted, at the five-minute mark when he banged home a rebound before the Kings' defense could answer.

On the first goal, Austrian Thomas Vanek drew the secondary assist on the goal with a workmanlike effort deep in the attacking zone. In fact, he had drawn a delayed penalty on defenseman Matt Greene when he kicked the puck free and onto the stick of newly-minted captain Jason Pominville, who fed it to Adam for a one-timer that squeezed through the legs of Jonathan Bernier.

The first goal came on Buffalo's 10th shot of the game. In four periods in Europe, Vanek now has 5 points -- 2 goals and 3 assists.
Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
