Los Angeles Kings 2015-16 Regular Season:
Game 61 vs. Buffalo, February 27, 2016, 8pm PST
The Los Angeles Kings finish up their three-game homestand on Saturday when they play host to the 25-30-7 Buffalo Sabres. The Kings already lost to the Sabres this season — a 2-1 overtime defeat on Dec. 12 in the Queen City — so the they will hope for a season-split in a game that will start a little later than usual: at 8pm PST.
Jhonas Enroth was in goal for Los Angeles on Dec. 12 and will likely get the call again as Saturday marks the first of back-to-back games for the silver-and-black. For Buffalo, expect Robin Lehner to get the call in goal after Chad Johnson is coming off a 24-save performance on Friday in San Jose. There, the Sabres won by a 3-1 count.
For the Kings, they are riding their first three-game winning streak of 2016 as they hope to extend that. However, despite their winning ways, the Kings have had trouble finding the back of the net as each of their three wins came in the form of 2-1 scores. They will need to find a way to solve the 6’6 Lehner on Saturday.
For the Sabres, this is the rubber match of their California trip after splitting the first two games. But while they look to win, the KIngs will most likely have a familiar face back in the lineup as defensive stalwart Rob Scuderi was re-acquired by the team on Friday.
Both clubs look to end the season series on a winning note and we will see which side gets the better end of things on Saturday night.
Enjoy the game!
