 SCOREBOARD
Monday, Oct. 15
Toronto at Buffalo (7 p.m. EDT). The Sabres have 13 goals in their last two games and 19 in four contests this season.

STARS
Sunday
-Henrik Zetterberg, Red Wings, had a goal and two assists and Detroit beat Los Angeles 4-1.
-Josh Harding, Wild, posted his third career shutout with a career-high 37 saves, leading Minnesota to a 2-0 victory over Anaheim.

SLUMPING
Detroit beat Los Angeles 4-1 on Sunday night, sending the Kings to their fifth consecutive loss. They have just one win so far, beating the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks in the season-opener in London. The Kings' start is their worst since they were 1-6-0 to open the 1987-88 season, including five consecutive defeats.

WILD START
Josh Harding posted his third career shutout with a career-high 37 saves Sunday night, leading the unbeaten Wild to a 2-0 victory over the defending champion Ducks. Minnesota's 5-0 start leaves the Wild as the NHL's only team without a loss, and puts them one victory away from matching last season's squad for the franchise's best winning streak from the start of a season.

SPEAKING
``I don't want to make too much of this win, but they're the Stanley Cup champions. So we'll keep that in mind and we'll try to keep getting better. It was a chippy game and a hard-fought game. It was like a playoff hockey game.'' - Minnesota's Brian Rolston after helping the Wild to a 2-0 victory over Anaheim on Sunday. The Ducks knocked the Wild out of the playoffs last season and went on to win their first Stanley Cup title.
