Top Notes

  • At 18:14 of the third period, the NHL Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine a play at the Columbus net. The referee informed the Situation Room that he deemed the play dead before the puck reached the goal line. This is not a reviewable play and therefore the referee’s call on the ice stood- no goal Buffalo.
  • With his goal tonight, Sam Reinhart now has a point in five of his last six games against the Blue Jackets (4+1).
  • Victor Antipin’s assist on Reinhart’s goal gives him three assists in his last four games.
  • Ryan O’Reilly’s assist gives him a three-game point streak and nine points (4+5) in his last 10 games.
  • Evander Kane’s 12th goal of the season ties him for fifth in the NHL. He now has 10 points (6+4) in his last 10 games against Columbus, dating back to the beginning of the 2013-14 season.
  • Jack Eichel recorded his 11th primary assist of the season tonight while leading all Sabres forwards in ice time with 20:54. He is now tied for fifth in the league in primary assists.

SABRES ACQUIRE SCANDELLA, POMINVILLE FROM WILD

BUFFALO, N.Y. (June 30, 2017) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has acquired defenseman Marco Scandella, forward Jason Pominville and a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for forwards Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno, and a third-round pick in 2018.

Selected by Minnesota in the second round (55th overall) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Scandella (6’3”, 208 lbs., 2/23/1990) recently completed his seventh NHL season with the Wild. A native of Montreal, Quebec, Scandella has recorded 89 points (27+62) in 373 career regular-season games with the Wild, with nine points (6+3) in 39 career playoff games.

Since being acquired by Minnesota from the Sabres in April 2013, Pominville has totaled 206 points (76+130) in 327 regular-season games, adding 23 points (9+14) in 36 postseason contests. Having appeared in parts of 14 seasons since being selected by the Sabres in the second round (55th overall) of the 2001 NHL Draft, the former Sabres captain has totaled 662 career points (261+401) in 905 regular-season games.
