Gaustad gives Sabres 3-0 lead
Buffalo is showing no signs of fatigue as they hold a 3-0 lead with 6:00 minutes left in the second period.

Paul Gaustad is the latest Sabre to score, planting himself in front of the Kings crease and deftly tipping a Nathan grebe shot past Jonathan Bernier. Defenseman Marc-Andre Gragani earned the secondary assist on the goal.

The sold-out crowd is in full voice now as they have adopted the Sabres as the "home" team because of the presence of German defenseman Christian Ehrhoff and Austrian forward Thomas Vanek in the lineup.

Vanek has assists on the first two goals -- both by Luke Adam -- and Ehrhoff has returned from an injury scare at the end of the first period.

After taking a 4-1 win against Anaheim in Helsinki, Finland on Friday night, the Sabres did not arrive in Berlin until after 4 a.m. because of some travel-related issues.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
