LOS ANGELES -- Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille squinted into brilliant sunshine Monday as the 18-wheel truck carrying the NHLs portable refrigeration units pulled up to the outfield entrance to Dodger Stadium. M.J. Stewart Jersey . In less than two weeks, their Los Angeles Kings and the rival Anaheim Ducks will turn Chavez Ravine into Californias version of a winter wonderland. The NHL is staging its first warm-weather outdoor game on a hockey rink flanked by a beach volleyball court and an below-ground swimming pool in the famed baseball stadiums outfield. The NHLs ice-makers were already at work on a beautiful 79-degree day, and Gretzky cant wait to see the next step in the evolution of a sport that didnt bloom in the California sun until the Great One moved to Los Angeles in 1988. "Im very proud that I was a piece of the group that was sort of responsible for stamping hockey into this area," Gretzky said while standing on the centre field grass. "It was the right group of guys, from Luc (Robitaille) to Marty McSorley to Kelly Hrudey to Tony Granato," Gretzky added. "Each and every guy understood that this was a different market from other markets in the NHL, and these guys always went above and beyond the call of duty to go out and promote the sport and get more and more kids interested." The game will be a landmark for hockey in the American Southwest, which has produced a handful of NHL players and dozens more prospects in the pipeline over the past quarter-century. But the game also heralds the return of the leagues career scoring leader to hockey prominence. Gretzky has mostly stayed out of the public spotlight for five years since leaving the Phoenix Coyotes bench, but he will be a prominent feature during the festivities, thrilling the NHL. Accompanied to Dodger Stadium by his wife, Janet, Gretzky said he is thrilled to see an outdoor game in the city where he played nearly eight NHL seasons. Robitaille, now the Kings president of business operations, said Gretzky is "like our Babe Ruth, and we need him around." "We cant have this game without having Wayne," Robitaille added. "Its so important hes here. Its so important that he be here for that game. Its the day before his birthday, too. Ive got to remember to have a cake." Gretzky, Robitaille and Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau got a detailed look at early preparations for the game, which will be played after the sun goes down on Jan. 25. The NHLs ice crews are putting down the foundation for the rink over the next few days, likely beginning the ice-making process Thursday. They will work entirely at night, gradually building up the ice sheet in colder temperatures while keeping it covered during the day. NHL ice specialist Dan Craig is intrigued by the challenge of a warm-weather game, but confident his crew will deliver a workable surface -- although he wont be getting much sleep over the next two weeks while working through the nights. Gretzky and Robitaille also arent worried. After all, they both remember the Kings outdoor exhibition game in 1991 in Las Vegas, where the biggest hitch was a grasshopper invasion of the ice. "People dont realize its like 65 degrees in a hockey arena," Gretzky said. "Its kind of warm. Its not that cold." M.J. Stewart Buccaneers Jersey . And, just for good measure, lets say the lottery team finishes the game short-handed because two starters come down with the very same injury. Jordan Whitehead Buccaneers Jersey .Tzavelas opened the scoring in the 11th and Pereyra added another in the 51st. Emmanuel Kone pulled one back in the 80th and Levadiakos missed several chances to level in the last 10 minutes. . -- Adrian Peterson takes a look around the league and sees big money flying everywhere.BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Detroit Red Wings put Jonas Gustavsson in a tough spot, and the backup goaltender bailed them out. Gustavsson made 21 saves, including a stop on Steve Otts penalty shot, and the Red Wings sent the Buffalo Sabres to their fourth straight loss, 3-1 on Sunday. Tied at 1 with 9:39 gone in the second period, Niklas Kronwall hooked Ott on a breakaway and Buffalo was awarded a penalty shot. The Sabres captain went left, and Gustavsson stayed with him. "I didnt actually think he was going to go that way because thats the way he went when he had the first opportunity, but he did," Gustavsson said. "I tried to be patient and follow him and lucky enough, he didnt score." Johan Franzen, Daniel Alfredsson and Darren Helm scored for the Red Wings. Henrik Zetterberg had an assist for his 700th career point. Cody Hodgson scored Buffalos goal. The Sabres are winless since a victory in interim coach Ted Nolans first game on Nov. 15. The Red Wings were playing their third game in four nights but appeared the fresher team against the struggling Sabres. "We decided to play a really solid game tonight," Franzen said. "We talked about being patient, not giving up too many chances for the other team. I think we stuck to the plan pretty good and finally managed to get the win." Gustavsson was a difference maker, with several key stops on Buffalos two third-period power plays, including a save on Drew Staffords between-the-legs effort. "Hes a gamer," Franzen said. "He battles like crazy out there. He can really play the puck and read the play so weve got a lot of confidence in him." Detroit improved to 7-3-1 on the road. Buffalo has lost 11 of 13 home games. Ryan Miller made 32 saves for the Sabres. He is 2-8-2 against Detroit in his career. "We cant just get by and feel like 1-1 is good," he said. "We have to go for it at home, especially with a team playing three in four nights." The Sabres took a 1-0 lead 11:58 into tthe game on a highlight-reel goal from Hodgson. Ryan Jensen Jersey. Stafford intercepted a clearing attempt and passed in the slot to Hodgson, who forced Gustavsson out of the crease goal and then, with his body behind the goal line, used his backhand to tuck the puck into the net. Detroit controlled play for most of the first period but Miller made 14 saves, including a left pad save on Joakim Andersson in the closing seconds, to maintain the Sabres lead. "Hes really good," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "Him and (Boston goalie Tuukka Rask) to me are two of the best skating goalies in the league. They look like they put no effort into it. Theyre just always in the right place. I thought he made some really good saves." It took less than a minute of second period play for Detroit to tie it. Alfredsson found Darren Helm in the slot, and Helm spun away from Tyler Ennis to lift a backhand past Miller. "I knew there was someone on my back there," said Helm, whos scored in three consecutive games. "I just tried to get into the middle and get a shot off. I kind of surprised myself." The go-ahead goal came on a power play when Franzens shot deflected off Sabres defenceman Alexander Sulzer and past Miller. Zetterberg assisted on the tally and improved his point total to 28, good for second in the NHL. Alfredsson scored an empty-net goal to clinch the win. It was the sixth game pitting Ryan Miller against his younger brother Drew, who is 5-1 against his older sibling. "He played really well," Drew Miller said. "A close win for us where he plays well but we still wins is kind of a bonus for me." NOTES: The Sabres wore their gold alternate jerseys for the first of 10 scheduled games this season... Detroit RW Todd Bertuzzi missed his second game with an upper body injury. ... The Red Wings were without Pavel Datsyuk, who is recovering from a concussion after an elbow from Jared Cowen on Saturday night in Detroit. He will be out indefinitely.
