Top Notes

  • With tonight’s win, the Sabres improved to 9-2-1 against the Pacific Division this season, including a 6-0-1 record at home, and earned their first season sweep of the Ducks since the 2011-12 season.
  • Buffalo is now 12-4-2 (.722) at home this season. The .722 points percentage puts the Sabres on pace for their eighth-best home record in franchise history and the best since the 1982-83 season (25-7-8, .725).
  • Linus Ullmark made 40 saves to record his second career shutout and second of the season. He became the first Sabres goaltender to record a 40-plus save shutout since Chad Johnson (44 saves) on Dec. 17, 2015 vs. Anaheim.
    • Ullmark finished the game ranked 10th in the NHL among qualifying goaltenders (min. 12 GP) with a .922 save percentage.
  • The Sabres have now shut out the Ducks eight times in the 38 all-time games between the clubs (Dominik Hasek-3, Martin Biron-2, Chad Johnson-1, Ryan Miller-1, Linus Ullmark-1). This amounts to one shutout for every 4.75 meetings, the Sabres’ highest shutout-to-games ratio against any NHL team. The next highest current ratio is 10 games per shutout (Columbus, three shutouts in 30 games).
  • Rasmus Dahlin’s goal tonight was his 20th point of the season (4+16). His 20 points in 37 games are already the 10th-most ever recorded by an NHL defenseman before his 19th birthday.
    • According to NHL PR, only three 18-year-old defensemen in NHL history have reached the 20-point mark faster than Dahlin’s 37 games: Phil Housley (28 GP), Ray Bourque (30 GP) and Aaron Ekblad (34 GP).
    • Phil Housley holds the record with 57 points (17+40) before turning 19 in 1982-83 with the Sabres.
  • With two assists tonight, Jack Eichel has tied his career high with 18 multi-point games this season. He is now tied with Mikko Rantanen and Nathan MacKinnon for the league lead.
  • Sam Reinhart also recorded two assists and now has a career-best 12 on the season. The Sabres are now 16-4-3 this season when he records a point and 27-4-6 in his career when he records at least two.
  • With his assist on Dahlin’s goal, Rasmus Ristolainen now has points in three straight games (1+2) and 12 points (2+10) in his last 12 home games.
