The Buffalo Sabres scored three times in third period Tuesday night, but they weren’t able to close the gap against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
With a goal and an assist, Jack Eichel extended his NHL-best point streak to 17 games, but Buffalo fell 5-3 at Scotiabank Arena.
Eichel has 15 goals and 15 assists during the streak, which ties a pair of Dave Andreychuk streaks for the second-longest in franchise history. Eichel is now one game from tying Gilbert Perreault’s franchise-best 18-game streak (10+21) set in the 1971-72 season.
Rasmus Dahlin and Kyle Okposo also scored for Buffalo. Victor Olofsson recorded two assists and Linus Ullmark made 28 saves.
With an assist on Rasmus Dahlin's goal tonight, Jack's streak lives on! #Sabres50 | @JackEichel15 pic.twitter.com/INJxIu98l1
