Kopitar, Amadio score 2 each in Kings' 4-2 win over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Anze Kopitar and the Los Angeles Kings took advantage of the Buffalo Sabres' second-period meltdown to snap a three-game skid and keep pace in the tightly contested Western Conference playoff race.

Kopitar and rookie Michael Amadio each had two goals in a 4-2 win, which the Kings broke open by scoring three times on consecutive shots over a span of 5:35 on Saturday afternoon.

"I think our second period was huge, not just getting the three goals but just dictating the game," said Kopitar, who upped his team-leading total to 25 goals. "I thought (today) was a step in the right direction, but we've got to continue going."
