Jack Eichel scored twice and Victor Olofsson netted the game-winning goal to give the Buffalo Sabres a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday at KeyBank Center.
Eichel extended his career-long point streak to 15 games. It’s the longest active streak in the NHL and he now has 27 points (14+13) during the run.
The streak is the longest by a Sabre since Tim Connolly tallied points in 16 consecutive games from Dec. 23, 2009 to Jan. 25, 2010.
Only four players in Sabres history have recorded a point streak of more than 14 games: Dave Andreychuk (2x), Tim Connolly, Rick Martin and Gilbert Perreault. Perreault holds Buffalo’s franchise record with points in 18 consecutive games from Oct. 24 to Dec. 4, 1971 (10+21).
Olofsson now leads all rookies with 29 points this season (13+16). He also has nine points (7+12) in his last 18 games.
Linus Ullmark was busy between the pipes, making 36 saves. Jimmy Vesey also scored for Buffalo.
