Top Notes

  • With his goal tonight, Jack Eichel became the third NHL player to record 30 goals and 30 assists this season. He’s the first Sabres player to do so since Jason Pominville (30+43) in 2011-12.
    • Eichel is the 23rd different player in franchise history to accomplish this feat at least once. Gilbert Perreault reached the 30/30 mark a franchise-record 10 times in his 17-season career.
    • Eichel reached the 30/30 mark in 50 games played, matching Perreault’s personal best for fewest games needed to get to 30 goals and 30 assists (1974-75).
  • With the primary assist on Eichel’s goal, Rasmus Dahlin recorded his 73rd career point, passing Bobby Orr for the fourth-most points by a teenage defenseman in NHL history. He trails only Phil Housley (132), Ray Bourque (79) and Rick Hampton (76).
  • Dahlin now has six assists in six career games against the Canadiens, including at least one assist in each of his last four meetings with Montreal.
  • Marcus Johansson’s assist tonight gives him nine points (1+8) in his last nine games against Montreal.

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).
