Video- Jack Eichel’s Four Points Helps The Buffalo Sabres Defeat The Boston Bruins

from Lance Lysowski of the Buffalo News,

The Buffalo Sabres center scored twice and assisted on both Jeff Skinner goals, including the game-winner with 3:31 remaining in regulation, to beat the Boston Bruins, 4-2. The Sabres improved to 20-9-5 and moved into second place in the Atlantic Division with 45 points, one ahead of Toronto and seven more than the Bruins.

Buffalo's nine regulation losses are tied for the second-fewest in the NHL and it earned three of a possible four points during a two-game road trip. Eichel had help from Linus Ullmark, who made 35 saves, including 12 in the third period. Zemgus Girgensons blocked a shot to spring Eichel for the empty-net goal.

But it was the Sabres' 22-year-old captain who willed them to victory under difficult circumstances.

"For one, I think we’ve obviously been through a lot of adversity together, and I think we’re probably sick of it," said Eichel, who grew up a 40-minute drive from the Bruins' home ice and starred during his one season at Boston University. "The last few years it’s not been easy. With the way our season started this year, I think we have a lot of confidence in each other and belief. We think we can win every game we play."

Video- Would You Call This A Questionable Hit By Zach Hyman?

via Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

“I thought it was late. I thought it was unnecessary,” said Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, reviewing the hit, for which Hyman was tossed from the game. “If the league takes a look at it . . . usually they do . . . but again, it’s one of those things, you’re at a point in the game where there hasn’t been a lot of bodychecking from their team and all of a sudden there’s a late, blindside, unsuspecting one . . . it annoys you.

“Especially when it’s Charlie, you wonder, ‘Are they targeting him, or not?’ You don’t know that — I’d like to think it was just a guy who got there late and didn’t pull up.”

The Slumping Toronto Maple Leafs

from Damien Cox of Sportsnet,

Hockey seasons go in peaks and valleys, ups and downs. One day you’re unbeatable, the next day you can’t imagine winning another game.

The Buffalo Sabres are a great example right now. They won 10 straight. Now they’ve lost five straight.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, meanwhile, seem to be in a mode where they’ve decided a full 60 minutes of focused hockey is for the other teams. You know, the teams without all the fancy young forwards. Along with that, they’ve also decided defending is for the less skilled. Competing hard, too.

The Leafs got away with such a laissez-faire performance at home Thursday against lowly Detroit, at least partially. They were so shoddy over 40 minutes they deserved to lose. They got a point out of it with a third-period comeback before losing in overtime.

Saturday night in the Massachusetts capital, they didn’t get away with a nearly identical effect.


Below, catch the game highlights of Boston's 6-3 win over Toronto.

The Rich Hockey History In Boston

from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe,

History has become almost a dirty concept nowadays, even here in the history-lovin’ Hub. We’re really not into that yesterday thing. Old is out. Particularly in sports. Fan and media focus is ever-centered on the next game, the next trade, the next live slice of craziness to play on the Jumbotron.

OMG, it’s a free pizza and . . . a T-shirt! Followed by, of course, a 100-decibel eardrum assault blasted through the Garden audio system.

Be still, my wood-leather-and-horsehair heart.

Truth is, the Bruins don’t make enough with their grand history, and that said, I am OK with their current ratio of retiring roughly one number for every decade they’ve been in business. The rafters should be for the crème de la crème, the players who put up numbers, capture our imaginations, and frame the conversations from one generation of fans to the next.
