BUFFALO —  Rookie sensation Jack Eichel netted another goal in the Buffalo Sabres pre-season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight en route to a 4-0 Sabres victory.

Eichel's goal, a short-handed snap shot, came at 13:48 of the first period, fed by Nicolas Deslauriers.

Fifty-nine seconds into the second period, Matt Moulson made it 2-0 with a tip-in goal from Matt Donovan and Brian Gionta. Evan Rodrigues made it 3-0 with a wrap-around goal at 2:41 of the second, assisted by Marcus Foligno.

Rodrigues made it 4-0 with his second goal of the night at 10:15 of the third period. The wrist shot was fed by Sam Reinhart and Mike Weber.

Goaltender Robin Lehner stopped all 24 shots the Sabres faced. Buffalo is now 4-1-0 in the pre-season. They next face the Minnesota Wild in Minnesota on Thursday before closing out the pre-season at home against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday.


  • As of the end of tonight's game, the Sabres led the league with 21 goals through five preseason games, including a league-best nine special-teams goals (four power play, five shorthanded).
  • With Jack Eichel's second shorthanded goal of the preseason, the Sabres have now scored a shorthanded goal in each of the team's five preseason games.
  • According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the team's regular-season record for most consecutive games with a shorthanded goal is four (2x, 2/26/94-3/6/94 & 3/28/95-4/4/95).
  • Evan Rodrigues led the Sabres with two goals tonight, getting the first two NHL preseason points of his career.
  • In his return from an injury that kept him out of the first four preseason games, Rasmus Ristolainen led both teams with 23:32  of ice time. Cody Franson (21:49) ranked second among Sabres skaters and logged a game-high plus-3 rating against his former team.
