Sabres down the Blues at home

Sabres down the Blues at home

Troy Brouwer scored his first goal of the season to even the game at 1-1, but Johan Larsson's goal in the final seconds of the second gave Buffalo a 2-1 edge.

Jack Eichel scored twice and extended his National Hockey League career-high point streak to 14 games in the Buffalo Sabres' 5-2 win against the St. Louis Blues at KeyBank Center on Tuesday.

During that week, Eichel scored two goals while adding 5 assist for a total of 7 points, which lead the National Hockey League.

The Blues played a hard fought game, but ultimately lose their third straight game moving to just 1 - 3 - 0 so far in December.

"I told you back home (prior to the road trip) that we really like that we've settled into a game", said Krueger last night. Linus Ullmark made 28 saves. He's well on his way to surpassing his performance last season and possibly reach the 100 point mark before the season is up. "He's give us a chance to win every night". After the Oilers broke the ice midway through the second period Ullmark faced Edmonton onslaught and didn't crack until a tip-in with one second left on the Oilers third powerplay of the night. Zach Bogosian fired a point shot well left of the net - but the opportunistic Larsson converted the hard carom off the end boards, putting the puck into the open side. "We know how much it meant to him".

The Sabres scored 18 seconds into the game and with eight seconds left in the second period to put the Blues at a deficit. Eichel now has 20 goals and 24 assists this season for 44 points.

St. Louis got a goal from Brouwer a little more than three minutes later.

With their win tonight over the Blues, the Sabres have won back-to-back games for the first time since October 19th and 22nd. "We had spurts in our game that I thought were good". Buffalo's No. 1 overall pick in 2018 has not been cleared for contact but is considered day-to-day, coach Ralph Krueger said. F Alexander Steen (ankle) and F Oskar Sundqvist (lower body) are both "getting pretty close" to rejoining the St. Louis lineup, coach Craig Berube said Tuesday. On Thursday, the Blues begin four-game homestand against Vegas, while the Sabres will host Nashville.
