Jack Eichel Scores Last Second Goal As Buffalo Sabres Win In Overtime
As the kid gets stronger and bigger and gains more experience the type of game he played on Saturday will become more routine. Jack Eichel's second goal of the afternoon was the game winner and they don't come any more dramatic. Eichel scored on a breakaway with one second left in overtime to give the Buffalo Sabres a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
Evander Kane was deep in his own end with nine seconds left on the clock when he spotted Eichel in the clear and flipped the puck down the ice. Eichel chased it down and beat Carolina goaltender Cam Ward between the legs for his first NHL overtime goal and his 22nd goal of the season. Eichel scored off a great pass from Sam Reinhart in the third period to give the Sabres a 2-1 lead only to have the Hurricanes tie it up again on the power play.
Marcus Foligno scored his ninth of the season to open to open the Buffalo scoring. Chad Johnson stopped 28 of 30 shots to pick up the victory.
The Sabres are off until Wednesday night when they host the Montreal Canadiens.
