Jordan Greenway collected two goals and an assist and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen made 34 saves to fuel the host Buffalo Sabres to a 7-0 rout of the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.JJ Peterka recorded a goal and an assist to boost his point total to six (four goals, two assists) in three career meetings vs. the Kings. He had two goals and an assist in the Sabres’ 5-3 win in Los Angeles on Jan. 24.Buffalo defenseman Rasmus Dahlin and Alex Tuch each scored and set up a goal on Tuesday. Captain Kyle Okposo and Zach Benson also found the back of the net as the Sabres improved to 18-3-1 in their past 22 home games against the Kings.The offense was more than enough for Luukkonen, who turned aside 15 shots in the third period to preserve his fourth shutout of the season and third in his past eight games.David Rittich yielded five goals on 17 shots before being replaced by Cam Talbot (five saves) for the Kings, who have lost 15 of their past 19 games (4-9-6).Buffalo opened the scoring at 4:25 of the first period following an alert play by Peterka.His initial wrist shot from the slot was denied by Rittich, but the puck squirted behind the goaltender and Peterka circled the net and backhanded it home for his team-leading 19th goal of the season and fifth in as many games.
