Game 61; 37-20-4

LOS ANGELES — It was quite the homecoming for Rob Scuderi as he notched an assist in his first game back with the Los Angeles Kings, helping them defeat the Buffalo Sabres by a 2-0 count. The win gives Los Angeles their first four-game winning streak since New Year’s Eve as they sweep their three-game homestand.

While Scuderi had a good night, a couple of other Kings had noteworthy evenings as well. First, Tanner Pearson continued his recent roll by scoring both goals — his 9th and 10th — to lead the silver-and-black offensively. In addition to Rob Scuderi, Alec Martinez, Jake Muzzin and Vincent Lecavalier all had assists. The Kings are now an incredible 9-0-0 this season when Pearson scores.

In goal, Jhonas Enroth faced his former club for the second time this season and this time, he was flawless as he stopped all 23 Buffalo shots to earn the shutout. The shutout was Enroth’s second of the season and seventh of his career.

Despite the win, the Kings were the unfortunate recipients of two disallowed goals. In the end, though, it didn’t matter as they start the weekend off on a positive note. But there is no rest for the silver-and-black as on Sunday night, they will be right back to work when they travel just up the road to take on the Anaheim Ducks in the always-popular Freeway Faceoff.
