  • The Sabres earned their first home-and-home series sweep since they beat the Canadiens on Nov. 28 and 29, 2014.
  • The team’s 5-0-0 record through five home games ties Buffalo’s second-best start at home, matching the 1972-73 and 1984-85 seasons. The team’s record for most consecutive home wins to begin a season is six, set in the 1975-76 season.
  • With his sixth career overtime goal tonight, Jack Eichel tied Derek Roy and Thomas Vanek for the most in Sabres franchise history.

  • Victor Olofsson recorded his ninth point of the season with an assist tonight. Rick Martin (1971-72), Phil Housley (1982-83) and Hannu Virta (1982-83) were the only rookies in Sabres history to tally more through the team’s first 10 games of a season.
