It took several years and a stop in New York and a more recent move to Columbus, but Marian Gaborik finally became a Los Angeles King. Gaborik was interested in the Kings a long time ago, and Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi had toyed with the idea of bringing in the forward with game-breaking potential. Timing is everything and it all finally came together shortly before Wednesday's trade deadline. Lombardi acquired Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for underperforming forward Matt Frattin and conditional draft picks.

The Kings and Buffalo Sabres were closing in on a trade Wednesday that would bring 6-foot-4, 208-pound defenseman Brayden McNabb to Los Angeles with a pair of second-round draft picks and send prospects Hudson Fasching and Nic Deslauriers to Buffalo. The deal was said to be set, but both sides still had to finalize it during a conference call with the NHL. McNabb was a third-round pick by the Sabres in the 2009 entry draft. He had no points in 12 games with the Sabres this season.

Gil Perreault scored one goal and set up two others Sunday night at Buffalo to lead the Sabres to a 6-1 victory over the Calgary Flames. It was the Sabres' fourth win in a row and moved them into a tie with Montreal for first place in the Adams Division. Six weeks ago the Sabres were fighting to keep out of last place. They were below .500 and beset with injuries. It was at this point that Perreault, an original Sabre, and Tom Barrasso, the teen-age goalie, began to assert themselves.

BUFFALO, N.Y. - First, the subplot: The Kings finally lost a shootout, falling, 3-2, as Buffalo won its first home game after nine attempts this season. But that clearly was the secondary storyline in a wildly unusual night in which the Kings lost their No. 1 goalie, Jonathan Quick, to an apparent lower-body injury with 1:20 left in overtime at First Niagara Center on Tuesday. Kings Coach Darryl Sutter indicated after his postgame news conference the planned course of action was to send Quick to Los Angeles for evaluation by team doctors.

The Buffalo Sabres shook up their front office and looked to their past to improve their prospects for the future. Team owner Terry Pegula fired Darcy Regier, who had been the Sabres' general manager since 1997, and Coach Ron Rolston and hired Pat LaFontaine, a Hockey Hall of Fame forward and former Sabre, to become  director of hockey operations. LaFontaine's surprise coaching choice was Ted Nolan, who had coached the Sabres for two seasons but left the organization in 1997 following a high-profile feud with goaltender Dominik Hasek.

They are hockey's equivalent of a quick cleaning, a sure-fire way to spiff up the place before getting to the serious stuff later. Yes, things often look a lot better after a game against the struggling Buffalo Sabres. The Kings have been struggling on the penalty kill, dealing with injuries to forwards Jeff Carter and Jarret Stoll and defenseman Matt Greene and inconsistency. Those concerns eased Thursday night after the Kings beat Buffalo, 2-0, sparked by power-play goals from centers Mike Richards and Anze Kopitar at Staples Center.

  It took forever - 574 games - yet it was accomplished immediately. Ryan Getzlaf's first career hat trick came Friday with 19 seconds still remaining in the first period, a burst that let the Ducks cruise to a 6-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres at Honda Center. "It's been an ongoing joke - that there are a lot of guys on that list that I wasn't a part of," Getzlaf said. "Got it just a shade under a decade, so … joke's over. " The Ducks (14-3-1) are on a 7-0-1 run in which they haven't lost in more than two weeks, and their 7-0 start at home is a franchise-best.

The NHL levied a heavy penalty on Buffalo Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta, hitting the repeat offender with a 10-game suspension for his illegal check to the head of Columbia Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson. He had an in-person hearing with the league Tuesday afternoon and has already served two games of the suspension. Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's chief disciplinarian, said in his video explanation that there would have been supplemental discipline assessed "no matter who delivered this hit. " But weighing heavily into the long suspension is the fact that Kaleta has been fined three times and suspended three other times in his career.
