BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Ryan OReilly got angry and the Buffalo Sabres offense got rolling.Jack Eichel scored two goals in a 2:08 span of the second period and assisted on another goal for the Sabres in a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.But it was OReillys goal earlier in the second that sparked a flurry of four goals in a 6:13 stretch for the Sabres.Hes our leader, Eichel said. Hes a huge player for our team. Steps up, makes a huge play, scores a beautiful goal and opens it up for us.Buffalo trailed 2-0 when OReilly circled from behind the net and lifted a hard backhand shot from the slot over Peter Budajs glove at 9:31 of the second period.I was just getting frustrated, OReilly said. The first (Kings) goal was clearly my fault, and being out there again, I got to create offense and not get scored on. . Its nice to do something and to get back and provide a spark for the boys.You saw it really the whole shift, Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said. He was taking over and taking the game on his stick. He scored an outstanding goal for us and ignited the rest of the team. We kind of steamrolled from there.Eichel scored his goals in the second and Brian Gionta also had a goal in the period.Eichel set up Evander Kane for an insurance goal late in the third period and Sam Reinhart scored into an empty net in the final minute.Kyle Okposo assisted on three of the Sabres goals, giving him 11 points in his last 10 games and a team-high 21 points this season. Okposo played after missing Mondays practice due to illness.Robin Lehner made 13 of his 30 saves in the third period and got the win for just the second time in his last 11 starts.Jeff Carter scored twice and Anze Kopitar had the other goal for the Kings, who opened a seven-game trip.Budaj made 18 saves. Jeff Zatokk replaced him for the final 6:12 of the second period and stopped two shots. Budaj returned for the third period.You have to get some saves, Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. Got a lot of goals scored on us with very few shots against.The Kings have lost three of four and are 4-8-1 on the road. They have lost eight straight in Buffalo since last winning here on Feb. 21, 2003.Were a fragile team, Carter said. Weve been doing it all year. Home, away, everywhere. Its time we take a big look in the mirror here because these next six games are pretty crucial.The Sabres entered the night as the NHLs lowest-scoring team with 56 goals through 27 games, but they scored four goals in a period for the first time since Dec. 26, 2015, turning a two-goal deficit into a two-goal lead.Following OReillys seventh goal of the season, Eichel tied the game with 6:24 left in the period on a backhand pass from the blue line that slid by Budaj.Gionta gave the Sabres the lead 12 seconds later when he deflected Brian Gorges wrist shot from the point, and Eichel scored his fifth goal in seven games on a wrist shot from the slot to make it 4-2 with 4:16 remaining.Carter scored his team-leading 14th goal 4:03 into the third period and beat Lehner on a breakaway 7:34 into the second period to put the Kings ahead 2-0.Kopitar gave the Kings the lead 3 minutes into the game when he muscled his way around OReilly and jammed the puck between Lehners pads. It was Kopitars first goal since Oct. 25 and his 246th with the Kings, tying him with Wayne Gretzky for sixth on the all-time list.Game notes Sabres D Zach Bogosian skated with the team on Tuesday for the first time since spraining his knee on Nov. 1. ... Kings F Trevor Lewis earned his 100th NHL point with an assist on Kopitars goal. ... The Kings lost for the first time this season when leading after the first period.

Custom Tampa Bay Rays Nike Jerseys . -- Former San Diego Chargers safety Paul Oliver was found dead at his Atlanta-area home Tuesday night, and a medical examiner said Wednesday that the ex-player committed suicide. From the perspective of the casual tennis fan, the Challenger series is the shadow circuit, where players generally ranked outside the top 50 scuffle for ranking position. But for many, its a stepping-stone to much bigger endeavors.Its a tough circuit, and everyone has to go through it, Frances Tiafoe said Tuesday from the Fairfield, California event. Its not as much about the money as it is the rankings points.Less than two years ago, Tiafoe was ranked No. 1,145 among ATP World Tour players, but by the end of 2015, he had zoomed up to No. 176.Now, at the age of 18, for the first time, he is a top-100 player -- No. 100 on the nose -- and part of the surging youth movement (#NextGeneration) that has come to define the ATPs 2016 season.Tiafoe is one of four teenagers ranked in the top 100.There are so many young guys coming up; its unbelievable, Tiafoe said. Youve got [Alexander] Zverev and [Nick] Kyrgios playing great tennis, and you feed on that.Its funny. Youre in juniors and looking up to the pros, and it happens so fast. Honestly, I thought it would be tougher to get up here.Ah, those impressionable teenagers. They dont always know what they dont know. Fact is, the next 50 spots will be far more difficult to scale. After that? Skill, mentality and luck will all help him become the top-10 player he envisions.Tiafoes swift ascendance, along with No. 71-ranked Californian Taylor Fritz, gives the United States two 18-year-olds in the top 100. The last time that happened?In 1990, Michael Chang and Pete Sampras were ranked among the top 100, at Nos. 10 and 14, respectively. Now, no one is predicting that Tiafoe and Fritz are going to combine for 15 Grand Slam singles titles, but that 26-year gap gets your attention.Fritz is the No. 5-ranked American man, behind Steve Johnson, Jack Sock, John Isner and Sam Querrey. Tiafoe is No. 7, behind Donald Young. Jared Donaldson, 20, is No. 10 behind Ryan Harrison.Back in February, Fritz reached the finals at Memphis and the quarterfinals in Acapulco. As a result, his last Challenger -- the Triple-A level of mens tennis -- came in April. This week, Tiafoe was playing in his 17th Challenger.The season began at Happy Valley, Australia, where the sturdily built Tiafoe lost in the first round (Fritz was the eventual winner there), then lost in the second round of qualifying at the Australian Open.Last week, Tiafoe took the title in Stockton, California, winning $14,400 but also collecting the championship share of 100 points. That vaulted him 17 spots, into the No. 100 slot.In the final, Tiafoe defeated Long Islander Noah Rubin, the 2014 Wimbledon junior champion. It was a potentially awkward match because they were booth being coached by former U.ddddddddddddS. professional?Robby Ginepri, a three-time winner on the ATP Tour and semifinalist in the 2005 US Open. Ginepri, according to Tiafoe, recently signed a 20-week coaching deal with the USTA.It was weird and pretty funny, actually, Tiafoe said. We both had a great week. Robby just told us to go out there and enjoy the battle. I was happy I played really well.Tiafoe, who also won the Challenger in Granby, Canada, was the first teenager to win multiple titles since Fritz did it last year, at Sacramento and Fairfield. Tiafoe was also a finalist in Lexington, Kentucky, Winnetka, Illinois and Tallahassee, Florida. Each of those results netted him 48 points, helping to move him up the ladder.His first-round match in Fairfield, against Blaz Rola, a 26-year-old from Slovakia, offered a glimpse of his improving game. A week earlier, in the first round at Stockton, Rola extended Tiafoe to three sets. On Tuesday, Tiafoe was down 3-1 in the second set and won the last six games to complete a 7-6 (6), 6-3 victory.I definitely served better than I did last week, Tiafoe said. Hes strong from the baseline, but I stayed tough. I knew I didnt need to be too aggressive, just solid. I was lucky to break back and win the second set.In Wednesdays second round, Tiafoe fell to French teenager Quentin Halys, another #NextGeneration player ranked among the top 200. Halys, ranked No. 170, beat Tiafoe in three sets for the third time this year.That illustrates the microscopic difference between players at this level. In March, Tiafoe beat Fritz in three sets at Indian Wells, but lost to him in the first round at Winston-Salem. Tiafoes summer featured a tight loss to No. 55 Adrian Mannarino in Washington, D.C., and a first-round defeat by Isner -- in a five-set match decided by a tiebreaker.Ive played close matches with top-50 guys, Tiafoe said. Really believing you can do it is a big thing.The new ranking is a goal Ive wanted to crack since I turned pro, according to Tiafoe, and it gets him very close to automatic entry into the main draw of the Australian Open. If he can gain a few more spots, he would guarantee it. To that end, he will likely play a Challenger event in Las Vegas the following week.Thats the goal, to be in the main draw of the majors, Tiafoe said. Thats huge, moneywise and playing at that level. Hopefully, I can do well and end the year around No. 80.That would set me up, cruising along nicely. I feel like if I can get comfortable, I can get better winning a bunch of matches at the next level. ' ' '
