Stafford's power-play goal puts Sabres up three
Drew Stafford has restored the three-goal lead less than four minutes into the third.

With Kevin Westgarth in the box for an offensive-zone cross-checking penalty, Stafford pounced on a rebound and swept it past Jonathan Bernier for his first goal of the season.

Nathan Gerbe and Derek Roy earned assists on the goal. For Gerbe, it was his second point of the night.

The goal was the first power-play tally Los Angeles has allowed in these first two games.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
