Sabres 3, Ducks 1
Benoit Pouliot scored the decisive goal late in the second
period, and goaltender Chad Johnson made 25 saves as the Buffalo
Sabres beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Sunday.
Buffalo (1-4-1) earned its first win of the season, outshooting
the Ducks 31-26. It was coach Phil Housley's first victory with
the club. The Sabres rebounded from allowing three power-play
goals in a 4-2 loss at Los Angeles on Saturday, denying the
Ducks in their four man-advantage opportunities.
Justin Bailey, called up from the minors before the game, and
Johan Larsson, into an empty net, also scored for the Sabres.
The Ducks (2-3-1) got a short-handed goal from Chris Wagner, the
team's third of the season, but they have yet to score a
power-play goal this season.
Golden Knights 3, Bruins 1
Alex Tuch and Vadim Shipachyov scored their first career NHL
goals, and Malcolm Subban stopped 21 shots while picking up his
first career victory to lead Vegas past Boston.
Tuch and Shipachyov were both recalled from AHL Chicago over the
weekend due to injuries to Jonathan Marchessault and Erik Haula.
Subban was making his first start for the Golden Knights in
place of injured regular Marc-Andre Fleury.
Subban, claimed off waivers from the Bruins on Oct. 3, was
making just the third start of his NHL career after compiling an
0-2 record and 5.82 goals-against average with the Bruins. But
Subban made 21 saves, outdueling Bruins starter Tuukka Rask, who
finished with 23 saves.
Kings 3, Islanders 2
Anze Kopitar and Drew Doughty each registered a goal and an
assist, and Darcy Kuemper made 23 saves as Los Angeles defeated
New York for the eighth time in the past nine meetings at
Kuemper won his debut in a Kings uniform after being signed as
an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. Jake Muzzin added
the other Los Angeles goal.
New York has lost three of its past four contests. Josh Bailey
and Casey Cizikas scored goals for the Islanders, and Jaroslav
Halak made 24 saves.
