ANAHEIM Nashville Predators Hats Authentic , Calif. (AP) — The Buffalo Sabres‘ West Coast trip was in danger of slipping off the rails before they got right back on track with a Southern California sweep.Rasmus Ristolainen scored a tiebreaking power-play goal early in the third period, and the Sabres rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 4-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday night.The Ducks had a 2-0 lead late in the second period when the Sabres suddenly got rewarded for their persistence in the final stop of their five-game trip.Kyle Okposo and Jeff Skinner scored 88 seconds apart in the second before Ristolainen ripped a rising slap shot through traffic and past former Sabres goalie Ryan Miller for his first goal of the season.Patrik Berglund added an empty-net goal as the Sabres followed up a blowout win over Los Angeles on Saturday with a comeback in Orange County. After back-to-back discouraging losses in Vegas and San Jose, the Sabres gathered themselves and earned their long-struggling club’s first back-to-back wins in SoCal since 2003.“Two complete games that we just played,” said Okposo, who got his first goal of the season on a power play. “I thought that was the first time all year that we got down in a game and we just never changed the way that we played. That second (Ducks) goal could have been a backbreaker for us, but we just stuck with it. We played the exact same way and we got rewarded.”Finishing a five-game trip with three victories also is a noteworthy development in the early stages of the Sabres’ attempt to end their seven-year playoff drought.“Especially on the road, you want to come back and have a good response when you go down,” said Skinner, who has five goals in the last five games after his hat trick against the Kings. “Down the stretch, we made some big plays. It’s a nice feeling when you win like that.”Okposo had a goal and an assist, and Carter Hutton made several big saves in the frantic final minute. Sam Reinhart had two assists and Hutton stopped 26 shots.Sam Steel scored his first NHL goal and Kiefer Sherwood scored his second NHL goal for the Ducks, who lost their second straight after a 5-1-1 start to the season. Anaheim is still missing injured forwards Corey Perry Custom Nashville Predators Jerseys , Patrick Eaves, Ondrej Kase and Jakob Silfverberg.“You’re trying to get to know each other,” Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf said. “We have so many guys in and out of the lineup right now. It’s hard to get that chemistry. It doesn’t excuse the lack of compete we had tonight.”Miller made 41 saves for Anaheim against the organization with which he spent his first 12 professional seasons and won the Vezina Trophy in 2010. Miller is the Sabres’ franchise leader with 284 victories and 540 games played in net, but he lost for only the second time in his five career starts against the Sabres.“We’ve been trying to clean it up as we’ve been going,” Miller said. “But we’re giving up probably too many power play and a few too many shots. It just needs to be better.”Before the game, a sellout crowd celebrated when the Ducks raised Hall of Fame forward Paul Kariya’s No. 9 to the rafters in the second number retirement in franchise history. Kariya, the first draft pick in the then-Mighty Ducks’ history, played his first nine NHL seasons with Anaheim, scoring 300 goals.The Ducks are short on veterans, but their newcomers contributed.The 20-year-old Steel tipped Brandon Montour’s long shot late in the first period for his first goal in his ninth NHL game.Moments after the Ducks ended a prolonged stretch of Buffalo puck possession in the second, Sherwood scored on a break with a long shot. The 23-year-old Ohio native grew up idolizing Kariya for their shared Japanese ancestry, and the undrafted free agent has seized a chance to play on the right wing in Anaheim with Perry sidelined.The Sabres quickly erased the lead with a pair of strong plays by Okposo and Skinner www.officialdevils.com , who used his speed to slip behind Anaheim’s defense.“If you continue to give teams opportunities to practice the power play, you are going to give them life,” said Ducks coach Randy Carlyle, whose team has yielded 13 power plays in the last three games. “The telltale sign (of poor play) for me is I’ve had to mix lines up three games in a row because I wasn’t happy with what was happening out there.”NOTES: Montour had two assists. … Silfverberg missed his third straight game with a broken fingertip. Perry (knee), Eaves (shoulder) and Kase (concussion) haven’t played all season, while Nick Ritchie hasn’t played since ending his contract holdout Wednesday. … The teams meet again in Buffalo on Dec. 22.UP NEXTSabres: Host Montreal on Thursday.Ducks: At Chicago on Tuesday. WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Minnesota Wild coach Bruce Boudreau is keeping it simple.”You’ve got to win four,” Boudreau said after the Winnipeg Jets beat the Wild 4-1 on Friday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference first-round series.”We are going home. Like other sports, you have to win one in the other team’s building. Whether you get beat bad or whatever, you still have to win one and it doesn’t matter if it’s now, the fifth, or the seventh. We have to take care of business at home. That’s all.”Paul Stastny New Jersey Devils T-Shirts Authentic , Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine scored in the third period for Winnipeg. Defenseman Tyler Myers had a goal in the second period and also had an assist. Rookie Jack Roslovic, replacing injured veteran Mathieu Perreault, had two assists in the game that ended with a series of fights.”We stuck up for each other,” Wild center Eric Staal said. ”We’re going to do our best to make this a series and compete. We’re going to come home in front of our fans and be ready to play Game 3.”Zach Parise had his second goal of the series when he deflected Mikko Koivu’s shot past Connor Hellebuyck to end the goalie’s shutout bid with 45 seconds left. The goal came on the power play after Jets forward Brandon Tanev was called for hooking with 59 seconds left.”We got the win and that’s all I care about, especially this time of year,”Hellebuyck said. ”The guys played so well in front of me, there’s no fault.”Hellebuyck made 16 saves. Devan Dubnyk stopped 39 shots for Minnesota.Winnipeg won 3-2 on Wednesday night. Game 3 is Sunday in Minnesota.”We’ve got to play a lot better than we have in the first two,” Parise said. ”We got to figure out a way to get some offensive zone time. I feel like we’ve been playing on three-quarters of the rink for two games now. You’re not going to win like that.”The Wild had more jump early in the scoreless first period, surpassing the four-shot total they had Wednesday in the opening frame by going 5-0 by the five-minute mark. That included three shots at Hellebuyck during a power play with Myers in the box for tripping.Dubnyk didn’t have to stop a Winnipeg shot until seven minutes had passed. The Jets then turned on a switch and had outshot the visitors 13-9 when the period ended, but many were from the outside.Winnipeg got its first power play five minutes into the second period when center Mark Scheifele was tripped by Wild defenseman Jonas Brodin, but it wasn’t their shots with the man advantage that sparked the crowd. Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien threw two big hits nine seconds apart, the first on Mikael Granlund in front of the Winnipeg bench New Jersey Devils Hoodies Authentic , the second a slam that rocked Koivu into the boards behind Hellebuyck.”Unfortunately, I didn’t get a good look,” Hellebuyck said about the hit on Koivu. ”I’m definitely going to be looking at the replays because the crowd went nuts.”Winnipeg only got one shot on goal on the power play, but the momentum carried on for Myers’ goal that made it 1-0 at 8:41.Myers got the puck at the point in the Wild zone, made some moves to get around forward Jason Zucker and sent a sharp-angled shot past Dubnyk on the blocker side at 8:41 of the second period for the 1-0 lead.Myers was dinged again for roughing forward Charlie Coyle 33 seconds after his goal, but the Jets kept the pressure on with some hustle and hits. When the second period ended, Winnipeg had outshot the Wild 27-14 and led 28-18 in hits.Stastny and Copp scored 1:42 apart, with Byfuglien sending a backhander to the front of the net that Statsny slapped in at 7:42.Copp made it 3-0 at 9:24 when he redirected in Bryan Little’s shot.
