Another night, another shutout for the Buffalo Sabres. But unlike Ted Nolan's first tenure in Buffalo, the Sabres keep finding themselves on the wrong end of these lopsided games as they lose to the Los Angeles Kings 2-0.
The Sabres have now scored just one goal in their last four games, and a grand total of nine goals in their eight games this season. They have a -19 goal differential, and are on pace to shatter their league-worst differential from last season of -91. Of course, they won't finish -190 in goal differential, but until their scorers start remembering how to find the net, the Sabres will find themselves firmly entrenched in the league's basement.
The Kings started pushing the Sabres around right from the get-go, as a Tyler Myers penalty in the first minute led to a quick power pay goal, and a lead that LA would never relinquish. Myers, as well as Stafford, would take out their frustrations later in the game with some fisticuffs, but those were the only highlights for the Sabres as Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter scored the game's only goals.
If you can stand it, the Sabres play again on Saturday at San Jose.
