ST. Nike Air Max Outlet Schweiz . LOUIS - Two-thirds of the St. Louis Blues top line has lived up to high expectations. Theyre starting to find out Jori Lehtera isnt just a third wheel.After Lehtera scored the franchises first natural hat trick since 1998, coach Ken Hitchcock wondered what took the left wing so long to leave the KHL.He should have come over a year before, quite frankly, Hitchcock said after Lehtera got the first three goals in a 6-1 victory over the punchless Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.The 26-year-old Lehtera was a third-round pick in 2008 but stayed in Europe until signing with St. Louis on July 1, so hes technically not a rookie.There were many reasons, Lehtera said. But now Im here.Jaden Schwartz assisted on all of Lehteras goals and Vladimir Tarasenko had assists on the first two, giving the Blues top line 25 points the last six games. Lehtera and Tarasenko, who leads the team with nine goals and 10 assists, were teammates in the KHL.He wanted me to score today, Lehtera said. Hes a good player and its nice to play with him. Pretty good passes from the guys.Lehteras first career hat trick was the Blues first natural since Al MacInnis on Oct. 12, 1998, against the Rangers. Its the first natural hat trick in the NHL since James Neal of Nashville on Oct. 23.The Blues are the only team in the NHL to get hat tricks from three different players this season. Tarasenko got his first career hat trick on a four-point night with the game-winner in overtime Oct. 28 at Dallas, and Schwartz had three points and an assist Oct. 18 at Arizona.Obviously, theyre highly talented and they make plays, Sabres captain Brian Gionta said. We gave them way too much time and space.Brian Elliott stayed unbeaten for his career against Buffalo and the Blues added three goals, two by Joakim Lindstrom and one by David Backes. Alexander Steen also had three assists and Kevin Shattenkirk had two.Tyler Ennis scored his team-leading fifth goal on a power play early in the third for the Sabres, held to one goal or for the 11th time in 16 games. Buffalo has totalled three goals in three losses to St. Louis the last two seasons, all by Ennis.Elliott finished with 28 saves to improve to 11-0-2 against Buffalo. The Sabres have scored an NHL-low 19 goals.Lehtera deflected a drive by Tarasenko past Michal Neuvirth at 17:08 of the first, converted a drop pass from Tarasenko at 3:21 of the second and scored his sixth of the season short-handed at 14:26 of the second on a one-timer from Schwartz.An exchange of hard hits on opposite ends of the ice, neither resulting in a penalty, led to four players assessed fighting majors. Steen was penalized for fighting for the first time in his career, getting by far the best against Ennis, and the Blues were a man short because defenceman Ian Cole drew an additional roughing minor.The Sabres were scoreless in the first period for the 13th straight game despite outshooting the Blues 15-10.Nicolas Deslauriers drew a match penalty for spearing against Tarasenko late in the third and the Blues made it a blowout by tacking on three power-play goals.The way we started was probably one of the best periods that we played so far this season, Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. Unfortunate incident at the end but overall I thought we had our moments and were still learning and were still growing.NOTES: World War II veteran Charles Rohde, 92, of St. Louis was wheeled to the blue line by Backes for the National Anthem on Veterans Day. Another WWII veteran, Wilbur Robins, was introduced during a break in the first. ... Buffalo F Chris Stewart, acquired in the deal for goalie Ryan Miller last February, was on the ice for all three of Lehteras goals. ... The three-assist game was a career best for Schwartz.

"It is a tremendous honour for me to be asked to drive the pace car for the Indianapolis 500," said Franchitti. "As a historian of motorsport and as a three-time winner of this great race, I will appreciate every minute of getting to pace the field. Although I wont be competing in the Greatest Spectacle in Racing, this will be as close as one person can get to the action." Franchitti will pace the field in the May 25 race in a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. Its the eighth time a Camaro has served as the pace car, and the 25th time a Chevrolet has paced the race. "He is a true champion who has earned the respect and admiration of competitors and race fans alike," said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice-president of performance vehicles and motorsports. &"It will be very special to have Dario lead the field to the green flag at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Nike Air Max 97 Schweiz . " Franchittis appearance as the pace car driver signifies a huge shift in Franchittis career. Hes moved into a driver development role with Chip Ganassi Racing, which switched to Chevrolet for the 2014 IndyCar season. Chevrolet has a long history with Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Indianapolis 500 and the IndyCar Series. Chevrolet was founded in 1911, the year of the inaugural 500-mile race, and the Chevrolet brothers - company co-founder Louis, Arthur and Gaston - all competed in early Indy 500 races. Arthur Chevrolet competed in the 1911 race and Gaston Chevrolet won it in 1920. "We are excited to see Dario Franchitti back at the Brickyard, where he has had a very successful driving career," said Doug Boles, president of Indianapolis Motor Speedway. "Not only will his appearance in the Camaro Z/28 pace car thrill race fans, it underscores Chevrolets important place in the past, present and future of the Indianapolis 500." ' ' '
