GLENDALE http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-bo-horvat-jersey , Ariz. (AP) — Five games into his first NHL season, rookie Rasmus Dahlin has his first career goal.The 18-year-old defenseman, the first overall pick in this year’s NHL draft, put in a rebound 2:45 into the game. It proved to be all the Buffalo Sabres needed in a 3-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.Dahlin was mobbed by his teammates on the ice.“They were really glad and that makes me glad, too,” he said. “A good win for us. It’s a tough league, but we’ll just keep moving forward.”Linus Ullmark stopped 36 shots for his first career shutout, Jeff Skinner had a goal and an assist, and Conor Sheary also scored for the Sabres. Ullmark, making his season debut, appeared in his 27th career NHL game.“It was sweet,” Ullmark said of his shutout. “I didn’t have to fight much to see the puck, so all credit to the guys for helping out.”Arizona failed to score for the third time in their first four games – including the second time at home.Antti Raanta had 20 saves for the Coyotes, who have two goals this season despite outshooting their opponents in every game.“If we’re not getting out chances or not getting our shots I’d be worried. But you can’t keep moving lines every time because you’re not scoring,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. “A guy hits a guy in the logo Youth Brandon Sutter Jersey , some guys, you’ve got to pick the corner. It’s four games and I know everybody’s frustrated we’re not scoring goals … at the end of the day you’ve got to be able to will yourself a goal.”The Coyotes went 0 for 3 on power plays and are 1 for 12 on the season. Defenseman and captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson took a nasty spill when he was tripped up late in the game on a hit by Patrik Berglund.Ekman-Larsson was able to return to the ice moments later, just before Skinner scored on a backhand with 3:31 to play in the third.Buffalo got started with Dahlin’s goal, but Skinner did much of the work to set it up. The center, acquired from Carolina in an offseason trade, skated around Coyotes defenseman Jason Demers and Raanta, leaving the puck for Dahlin for the finish.“I was happy for him. First one,” Skinner said of Dahlin. “You watch him play and you know it’s going to come for him, it was going to come. He’s got so much skill. Nice for him to get it out of the way.”A cross-checking penalty on Arizona’s Christian Fischer set up Buffalo’s first power play of the game, and Sheary beat Raanta on his blocker side after Sam Reinhart faked a shot and dished the puck out to Sheary. The goal, with 1:54 left in the first period, gave Buffalo a 2-0 lead and was the first power-play goal allowed by Arizona this season.The Coyotes missed a pair of good chances late in the second, with Ullmark stopping shots from close range by Richard Panik and Fischer before the period ended.NOTES: Former Coyotes D Zbynek Michalek, who played 612 career games with the team, dropped the ceremonial first puck before Saturday’s game. Michalek is second among defensemen all-time in games played for Arizona. … F Josh Archibald (upper body injury) was scratched and has missed the first four games of the season. … Sheary’s three goals tied him with C Jack Eichel for the team lead. … Sabres C Vladimir Sobotka played for the first time since the season opener on Oct. 4. He then missed the next three games with an upper body injury.UP NEXTSabres: At Vegas on Tuesday night.Coyotes: At Minnesota on Tuesday night. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Iafallo is starting his second season with the Los Angeles Kings on a line with a Hart Trophy finalist and a former No. 1 overall draft pick.The former undrafted free agent realizes his extraordinary good fortune to be alongside Anze Kopitar and Ilya Kovalchuk Brendan Leipsic Jersey Kids , and he’s determined to make the most of it.Iafallo scored two third-period goals and Kovalchuk had his first two NHL assists in nearly 5 ½ years, leading the Kings to a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.Kopitar and Paul LaDue also scored as the Kings earned their first victory of the new season.Kovalchuk’s first point with the Kings also was his 400th career assist when he set up Kopitar’s goal in the second period. The Russian star then pounced on a puck near the corner during the third period and found Iafallo with a blind pass for the Kings’ third goal.Iafallo added an empty-netter, sealing the win and his promising performance alongside two NHL greats. The Kings’ top line combined for five points.“It’s a blast,” Iafallo said of his line assignment. “It’s pretty cool being out there with them, and learning from (Kovalchuk) and being able to pass to him.”With beautiful scoring passes to each of his new linemates, Kovalchuk recorded his first multipoint NHL game since April 25, 2013. Now 35 years old, the former No. 1 pick in the NHL draft joined the Kings this season after five years with SKA St. Petersburg.“It’s been pretty good, (but) just like our team’s game, there’s still room for improvement,” Kopitar said of his line. “We’ll chip away, keep getting better and create more chances and score goals.”Jack Campbell made 36 saves for the Kings in place of Jonathan Quick, who went on injured reserve with a lower-body injury sustained in practice Saturday. Campbell earned his third career NHL victory with several solid stops.“I thought he was terrific,” Los Angeles coach John Stevens said. “It was a really solid performance coming in on short notice.”Anthony Mantha and Dylan Larkin scored power-play goals for the Red Wings, and rookie defenseman Dennis Cholowski had two assists.Former Kings goalie Jonathan Bernier stopped 21 shots in his Detroit debut http://www.officialcanucks.com/authentic-adidas-brock-boeser-jersey , but a miscommunication with his defensemen allowed Kovalchuk to swoop in for the puck and the pass setting up Iafallo’s first goal.“I felt OK, but I take this loss on my shoulders,” Bernier said. “I thought we played a really good game. We gave up a couple of things, but we played solid. I’ve got to make better plays.”The Red Wings signed Bernier as a free agent in July. He was drafted 11th overall by Los Angeles in 2006 and was Quick’s backup on Los Angeles’ 2012 Stanley Cup championship team.After a scoreless first period, Kopitar got a slick pass from Kovalchuk and roofed a backhand for his second goal in the Kings’ two games.Iafallo’s first goal went into Bernier’s net in the third period after the goalie knocked it off its moorings, but officials allowed the goal to stand.Larkin got an unassisted goal off his own rebound late in the third, but Iafallo added an empty-netter.“At the end, there was a couple of costly mistakes and turnovers that they capitalized on,” Larkin said. “But we had a great start. We neutralized their heavy game by moving the puck quick in the offensive zone, and we had a ton of shots. If we play like that, I think we’re going to be a hard team to play against.”NOTES: Detroit D Trevor Daley left in the first period with an upper-body injury after falling when he apparently got his right skate blade caught between the boards and the ice. … Kings D Drew Doughty played in his 330th consecutive game, matching the franchise record set by Kopitar from 2007-11. … F Jaret Anderson-Dolan made his NHL debut for the Kings after becoming the youngest player to make Los Angeles’ roster since 1984. The 19-year-old’s family was in attendance at Staples Center.UP NEXTRed Wings: At Anaheim Ducks on Monday.Kings: Open four-game Canadian road trip at Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
