LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Drew Doughty and Anze Kopitar scored 55 seconds apart late in the second period to lead the Los Angeles Kings over the Florida Panthers 4-1 on Saturday.

Jeff Carter and Milan Lucic also scored, Jonathan Quick made 18 saves and the Kings beat Florida at home for the seventh straight time.

Nick Bjugstad scored for the Panthers. Florida has lost five straight games and hasn't scored a third-period goal in any of them.

Roberto Luongo stopped 31 shots, including a breakaway by Lucic with 4:50 left in the second period to keep it tied 1-1. But the Kings outshot Florida 20-4 during that period and quickly grabbed a 3-1 lead.

Doughty's first goal of the season came on a power-play one-timer from the left circle that trickled through Luongo's pads with 3:21 left in the period. Kopitar then scored during a goalmouth scramble.

SABRES 3, CANUCKS 2

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) ? Rasmus Ristolainen scored his second goal of the game with 16.8 seconds left to lead Buffalo over Vancouver.

Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller played his first game back in Buffalo since being traded in February 2014, after more than 11 seasons with the Sabres.

Jamie McCabe also scored for the Sabres. Jack Eichel, the 18-year-old centre Buffalo drafted with the No. 2 overall pick, had two assists and rookie goaltender Linus Ullmark made 35 saves.

Henrik Sedin and Chris Higgins scored for the Canucks in the first of a seven-game road trip. Miller made 19 saves.

Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno set up Ristolainen for a slap shot from the point that gave Buffalo the win.
