BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Sabres have claimed forward Jordan Nolan a day after the son of Buffalo's former coach was waived by the Los Angeles Kings.
Nolan has six seasons of NHL experience and is the son of Ted Nolan, who spent two separate stints coaching the Sabres.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings kept the pressure on most of the game and it finally paid off in the final two minutes.
Jake Muzzin took a slick pass in front of the net from Jeff Carter and scored a power-play goal with 1:49 to play, giving the Los Angeles Kings a 3-2 victory over Arizona on Tuesday night that snapped the Coyotes' season-best three-game winning streak.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Peter Budaj made 28 saves to lead the Los Angeles Kings to a 4-0 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.
Nick Shore, Nic Dowd, Jeff Carter and Devin Setoguchi scored for Los Angeles. Playing the sixth of their season-long nine-game road swing, the Kings improved their record to 3-2-1 on the current trip.
Budaj made 12 saves in the first period, nine in the second and seven in the third en route to his fourth shutout of the season and 15th of his career.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Asked if he knew when he scored his last goal, Jordan Nolan put his head down in the locker room. He laughed a little.
"I couldn't tell you," Nolan said. "I don't even want to look back on it. Just kind of forget about it and just move on."
Nolan scored his first two goals of the season — and his first since April 2015 — to help the Los Angeles Kings edge the Arizona Coyotes 4-3 on Wednesday night.
