Top Notes

  • Linus Ullmark stopped six of seven Capitals shootout attempts to improve to 4-2 in his career in the shootout. His .840 save percentage in shootouts ranks third among active NHL goaltenders (min. 2 shootouts) and currently ranks first in Sabres history.
    • His four shootout wins trail only Ryan Miller (49) and Jhonas Enroth (10) for most in franchise history.
  • With his goal tonight, Victor Olofsson became the 16th Sabres rookie to record 20 goals in a season and the first since Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart did so during the 2015-16 season.
  • With his power-play goal tonight, Eichel now has six points (3+3) in his last six games against the Capitals.
  • Dominik Kahun’s game-deciding goal was his first career NHL shootout goal. He is now 1-for-2 in the shootout in his career.
  • With his 35th and 36th assists in his 59th game of the season, Rasmus Dahlin surpassed his output from his 82-game rookie campaign (35).
  • Dahlin’s second assist of the game gave him seven points (2+5) in five career games against the Capitals. His seven points and 1.4 points per game against Washington represent his highest career outputs against any NHL team.
  • Dahlin also scored on his first career shootout attempt. It was the fifth shootout goal ever scored by a Sabres defenseman and the first since Rasmus Ristolainen’s goal on March 17, 2017 at Anaheim.
    • Ristolainen’s goal at Anaheim was the last of 10 previous shootout attempts by Sabres defensemen before tonight.
  • Marcus Johansson earned the primary assist on Olofsson’s goal and now has six points (2+4) in his last six games against the Capitals.

Top Notes

  • Sam Reinhart opened the scoring just 18 seconds into tonight’s game. It was the Sabres’ fastest goal from the beginning of a game since Johan Larsson scored 18 seconds into a 4-3 victory on Dec. 1, 2016 against the New York Rangers.

  • Eichel’s second goal was the 13th empty-net goal of his career, tying Gilbert Perreault and Miroslav Satan for the most empty-netters in Sabres history.
  • With his goal and an assist tonight, Reinhart now has five points (3+2) in his last four games.
  • After recording two assists tonight, Victor Olofsson now has 18 points (6+12) in his last 17 games, including two-point performances in four of the team’s last five games.
