Sabres C Eichel day to day with upper body injury

"I saw maybe one forward was changing there, so I felt a little chance to go down to the net and the puck got to me".

"You can see D diving in and making smart plays and just playing with more confidence", Scandella said.

Krueger is going to think twice the next time there is possible goalie interference when an opponent scores against the Sabres.

Not surprisingly, two critical goals from defensemen turned out to be the difference Saturday before the announced crowd of 17,484 inside KeyBank Center.

Kempe opened the scoring 1:32 into the second. Rasmus Ristolainen and Marco Scandella also scored for the Sabres, Sam Reinhart registered two assists.

"We're working with different combinations trying to find ones that fire and ones that will go for us". I didn't like our effort in the second period again. "Well, just continue sticking with our principles in general where we need to get traffic to the net, we need guys in the blue paint to create secondary opportunities and I'm sure our secondary scoring will improve". We got a couple long shifts in their zone and I think that really got us going.

The Sabres then grinded out their 11th home win and 17th overall.

"He's emitting a calm in his persona", Krueger said. It was yet another commanding performance for the 26-year-old netminder, who has become the Sabres' clear top option in the crease this season.

"It is a mindset", Krueger said of closing out games.

Saturday ended up being a tight finish. They've generally been playing solid hockey for about a month now and have had only a handful of bad periods leading to their last three regulation losses-a bad third period at Tampa on November 25, a poor second period at Calgary on December 5, and the first two periods of their last game in Toronto.

Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel has been listed as day to day with an upper body injury. Eichel's point scoring streak fell one short of the Sabres' franchise record of 18 games set by Gilbert Perreault, who scored in 18 straight games from October 24 to December 4, 1971. "The last week has been very challenging for me, but I'm so happy for all the love and strength you all are giving me on this journey", Lindblom said.

"Versatility's got to be one thing", Lazar said when asked what led to him being recalled. I wouldn't be surprised to see his point-production grow or stabilize at this level as the year goes along, either, given how many chances he's continued to create at 5-on-5 in Alain Vigneault's system.
