  • With tonight’s win, the Sabres have improved to 8-1-1, matching their second-best record through 10 games in franchise history (1975-76 and 2009-10). The team’s best ever start was a 10-0-0 record to begin the 2006-07 season.
  • 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.

Top Notes

  • With their 10th win in a row, the Sabres have matched their franchise record for consecutive wins in a season. The record was originally set in January 1984 and tied in October 2006.
    • In addition to the three official 10-game winning streaks, the Sabres have twice won at least 10 consecutive regular-season games during streaks that spanned two seasons: 15 games (April 8 to Oct. 26, 2006) and 11 games (April 1 to Oct. 26, 1975).
  • The Sabres now have points in 10 straight games for the first time since they recorded points in 11 straight from Dec. 26 to Jan. 18, 2010 (8-0-3).
  • Buffalo has won six straight home games for the first time since Nov. 28 to Dec. 15, 2014.
  • The Sabres are now 10-0-2 in one-goal games so far this season. Buffalo last won more than half of its one-goal games in a season in 2011-12 (21-9-11). The team’s current .833 winning percentage in one-goal games would top the franchise record of .714 (10-4-0) set in the 1977-78 season.
  • Jeff Skinner’s 19th goal of the season tied him for the league lead. He is on pace for 65 goals this season, which would be the second-highest goal total in Sabres history, trailing only Alexander Mogilny (76) in 1992-93.
  • With his goal tonight, Rasmus Ristolainen now has five points (1+4) in his last five games.
  • Tage Thompson, who registered an assist on Ristolainen’s goal, now has four points (3+1) in his last five games.
