BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres just cant seem to score against Roberto LuongoLuongo stopped 26 shots for his 67th career shutout — fourth against Buffalo — to lead the Florida Panthers to a 1-0 win over the Sabres on Friday night for their first victory of the season.Luongo, who moved past Patrick Roy into sole possession of 13th place on the career shutouts list, extended his scoreless streak against the Sabres to 183 minutes, 19 seconds.Its crazy, Luongo said. I dont know if its a comfort level thing or whatnot, but its nice especially to get our first win like that.Sean Bergenheim scored in the second period for the games only goal, sending an odd-angled wrist shot between Mike Webers legs and past Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth.Enroth finished with 34 saves for Buffalo.Florida coach Gerard Gallant got his first win with the Panthers.Its good, Gallant said. Its not fun when you lose but its a fresh year. Still a bit of a slower start but this is a big road trip to get things going the right way.The Panthers had the first six shots of the game before Buffalo went on a power play and forced Luongo into his first two saves of the night.A giveaway in his own slot by Marcus Foligno gave Tomas Fleischmann a 1-on-1 with Enroth midway through the first, but the Sabres goalie made a right pad save to keep the game scoreless.Luongo was called upon to make a pair of close-range shots on Matt Moulson early in the second.Foligno had a wraparound attempt in the third periods first minute, but Luongo slid over to stop the puck with his left pad.You got that guy back there and your team is so much more confident, said Panthers defenceman Erik Gudbranson. He made really good saves all night. Its amazing how he tracks the puck within those scrambles and is able to come up with pretty key saves.The Sabres wasted a prime opportunity when they had a 5-on-3 power play for 49 seconds in the third period. Luongo made a pair of saves before Erik Gudbransons penalty expired, then three more by the time Chris Stewart ended the power play by taking down Upshall in the slot.(Luongo) made four, five saves in the third period, like real key saves for us, Gallant said. Especially that 3-on-5 when the guys did a great job killing that so those were definitely key points in the hockey game and I thought our group stood up real good.Buffalo again had a slow start, with just three first-period shots on goal, and failed to build on Tuesdays win in Carolina.Were definitely not happy, Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. No ones going to help us get out of this thing except for ourselves. We got a good group of guys. We just got to learn we have to compete and we have to work. Were not a fancy team.With Floridas Aaron Ekblad and Buffalos Sam Reinhart, the game also marked the earliest season match-up between the NHLs No. 1 and No. 2 draft picks since 1997, when Bostons Joe Thornton and San Joses Patrick Marleau faced off.Luongo, drafted No. 4 overall that year, began the day with a 1.93 goals against average, .938 save percentage in 19 career games against the Sabres.He shut out the Sabres in his first game with Florida on March 7 after blanking Buffalo with Vancouver exactly a year ago.The Sabres havent scored against the Panthers in 132:24, dating back three games to Jan. 21.Florida has now won four straight games against the Sabres, and four straight in Buffalo.The Sabres have lost all three home games to start the season after losing their first nine last season, a franchise worst.When things aint going good, our confidence kind of lacks a little bit, Nolan said. I dont think we put two passes together all night long. Our confidence is a little bit rattled. William Gholston Womens Jersey .

The New York Rangers finally had a first-hand look in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, mounting an early assault before Los Angeles knocked them back to win 3-2 in overtime. Asked to compare the physicality of the well-drilled Kings to the three teams the Rangers have beaten in the playoffs to date, New York coach Alain Vigneault neatly summed up the challenge before the Blueshirts. "Philly was a physical team and they played on the edge," he said. "Pittsburgh played more of a skill game, but they also had quite a few players that played on the edge. Montreal was a real structured team. So they were three different opponents. "This one here is structured. Theyve got skill. Theyre physical. So makes it a pretty big challenge." You can add battle-hardened to that list. In the dog-eat-dog Western Conference, the Kings have come to the final the long way. They have had to run the gauntlet of San Jose, Anaheim and Chicago -- teams that finished 15, 20 and 11 points, respectively, ahead of New York in the regular season. And they did it without home-ice advantage. "Were a team thats just never going to go away," said Los Angeles forward Kyle Clifford. "Doesnt matter what the score is, were going to play our hardest and do what we do best." The Kings, who clawed their way back to dominate the second half of Wednesdays game, have already given the Rangers plenty to chew on. The New Yorkers, nestled in a five-star cubbyhole on the beach, had the day off Thursday to ponder the challenge. "To be able to be away from the game is a good thing, but at the same time I think if you ask every guy on our team, where were at mentally right now is were at the rink still," said forward Derek Stepan. "Guys are evaluating their own games, getting ready to make adjustments and get ourselves ready for Game 2." That comes Saturday, and Vigneault wasted little time challenging his players to up their game this time. "One thing is real evident to me, and it should be to our whole group, is were not going to beat this team if we do not all bring our A game," Vigneault said. "It is that strong of an opponent that were playing against. "We had Hank (goalie Henrik Lundqvist) that brought his A game last night. We had a couple guys. I dont want to name who, I think brought their A game. But our B game wont do it. Were not goingg to win if we bring our B game to the table.dddddddddddd "Theyre one of the best teams Ive seen in a long time. Areas to exploit, they dont jump out at you. Were going to have to be better than we were." Unlike in the Eastern Conference final series against Montreal, where Vigneault and Habs coach Michel Therrien poked and prodded each other verbally, Vigneault has been all business so far in the final. He seems to be staring at the Kings, like a career bank robber pondering how to take down a state-of-the-art safe. The Rangers coach says his team knew going into the series what was needed to win. "Its something that we discussed -- how good the opponent was. And thats a challenge. At this time of the year to win, you got to bring your A game. Thats each and every player. When we played Game 6 against Montreal, each and every player brought his A game. Its not an easy thing to do. But against this opponent, I do believe our expectations are to win, (weve) got to find a way to do it." Vigneault is no strangers to the challenge, having crossed paths with the Kings many times during his years as coach of the Canucks. "They were a good team in the years past," he said. "Theyre a real good team now. Theyve obviously got more experience. They play their game plan to a T and they dont deviate in any shape, way, or form so that makes it real challenging for the opposition." Captain Dustin Brown says part of the secret of the Kings success is their familiarity. "For our team, its just a result of us being together for a long time. I think that goes a longer ways than most people think," he said. "When it gets really hard, really tough, you know the guy next to you very well. You know what hes going to do in those types of situations." Worrying for the Rangers is the fact the Kings, who fell behind 2-0 in the first period only to rally and outshoot New York 20-3 in the third, can be better. Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter acknowledged his team was sluggish following the quick turnaround from the gruelling series with Chicago. "Guys are not machines," he told a media availability at a hotel adjacent to their practice facility. "We can play a lot better," he added. "Its way better when youre not chasing the lead." Sutter did his bit to inject some life into his team, changing up the lines in the first period as soon as he saw some players did not have their legs under them. The Kings also had an off-day Thursday. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
