Top Notes

  • With tonight’s win, the Sabres have won their first two home games for the first time since the 2008-09 season.
  • With his goal tonight, Victor Olofsson has now scored in each of Buffalo’s last three games, tying James Neal for the NHL lead with four power-play goals this season.
  • Each of Olofsson’s six career goals have come on the man advantage. He has tied an NHL record by becoming the fourth player in NHL history to score each of his first six goals on the power play, joining Craig Norwich, Sylvain Turgeon and Jeff Norton.
  • With two power-play goals tonight, the Sabres have scored multiple power-play tallies in three straight games for the first time since March 4 to 7, 2009.
  • With two assists tonight, Rasmus Dahlin now has points in each of the Sabres’ first four games. His seven points (1+6) are currently tied for third-most in the league.
  • Dahlin’s four-game point streak is the third-longest streak by a teenage defensemen to open a season in NHL history. He now sits one game shy of tying his career-high five-game point streak, a feat he achieved last season from Jan. 8 to Jan. 16, recording six points (1+5) during that span.
  • Jack Eichel recorded his first four-point game of the season with two goals and two assists. It is the sixth game of his career with at least four points and his first since Dec. 16, 2018 at Boston.
  • Jeff Skinner’s goal tonight gives him at least a point in three straight games (3+1).
