Tim Connolly nets winning goal in Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Tim Connolly wasn't aware that the Los Angeles Kings owned the NHL's top penalty-killing unit. It didn't matter.Connolly snapped a third-period tie with a power-play goal to help lift William Gay Jersey the Buffalo Sabres to a 4-2 win over the Kings on Friday night.The goal was Buffalo's second of the game with the man advantage against Los Angeles, which had allowed just seven man-advantage goals and killed 90 per cent of opposition power plays coming in.The Sabres entered having converted only two of their previous 26 power-play opportunities over their last seven games, and were ranked 26th in the league."We just wanted to work hard, be available to each other and get pucks to the net," said Connolly, who snapped a nine-game goalle s drought. "A lot of the games are decided by special teams. Coty Sensabaugh Jersey Ours are getting better."Thomas Vanek added a power-play goal and a sist, Dan McCullers Jersey and Andrej Sekera and Jochen Hecht also scored for the Sabres (8-10-3), who have won five of seven after a 3-9-2 start."Our power play hasn't been the greatest," Vanek said. "We've had chances, but we just haven't buried them. Tonight we were able to."The Sabres' penalty-killing was just as impre sive, turning aside all five of Los Angeles' opportunities, including 46 seconds of a two-man advantage late in the first period.Ryan Miller finished with 34 saves for Buffalo, and was a primary reason why the game was tied 2-2 after 40 minutes. The Kings held a Hines Ward Jersey 27-14 shots advantage after two periods."I didn't like the way we started," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said. "They have a big, strong team that can shoot, and I knew we had to ramp up our intensity."
