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.
