ANAHEIM, Calif. — Widely outshot again, the Buffalo Sabres dropped the first game of their west coast road trip to the Anaheim Ducks, 4-1.

As has been the custom lately, the opposing team scored first — and often. Anaheim's Corey Perry started the scoring off at 8:50 of the first period with Devante Smith-Pelly notching the assist.

At 9:20 of the second period, Ryan Kesler put the Ducks up 2-0. Andrew Cogliano and Jakob Silfverberg got assists on that goal.

Things opened up towards the end of the game, with Tyler Ennis grabbing the Sabres' only goal of the night. Matt Moulson assisted, and the Sabres looked to be in the game, down 2-1 with 5:06 left to play. But Perry picked up his second goal of the night for Anaheim just over two minutes later, and then got the hat trick on an empty netter at 18:35. Getzlaf assisted on Perry's second goal, while Francois Beauchemin and Nate Thompson helped on the final goal.

Anaheim netminder Frederick Anderson stopped 22 of 23 shots, while the Sabres' Michal Neuvirth stopped 30 of 33.

The Sabres, now 1-6, play Los Angeles tonight at 10:30 Eastern Time.
