ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- The Buffalo Sabres continue to roll along. The St. Louis Blues are showing signs of improvement.

The Sabres are coming off a 7-2 pounding of the Nashville Predators on Thursday. Maxim Afinogenov, Ales Kotalik and Jason Pominville each had two goals for the Sabres, who led, 2-1, after the first period but pulled away by netting three unanswered goals in the second period.

Ryan Miller was given the night off, and backup netminder Martin Biron made 29 saves.

The Blues, who have the second fewest points in the league, have won two straight games and improved to 2-2-2 under new coach Andy Murray, who took over on December 12.

Lee Stempniak and Barret Jackman had a goal and an assist to help lead the Blues over the Los Angeles Kings, 5-2, on Thursday. David Backes scored his first career goal while Jay McClement and Martin Rucinsky notched the other tallies for St. Louis.
