BUFFALO -- Rookie Jack Eichel impressed but he wasn't enough to win as the Tampa Lightning downed the Buffalo Sabres 4-1.

Eichel's goal at 4:21 of the second period is sure to make highlight reels as he split a pair of Tampa defenders before burying the puck behind goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy. Mike Weber assisted, as did Tyler Ennis.

Tampa had the rest of the game's goals, starting with Steven Stamkos at 5;55 of the first period. Valtteri Filppula and Ondrej Palat assisted. Tyler Johnson made it 2-0 Tampa at 11:35, assisted by Alex Killorn and Nikita Kucherov. Kucherov made it 3-0 at 18:20, assisted by Vladislav Namestnikov and Braydon Coburn.

Victor Hedman scored an empty-net goal with 30 seconds remaining in the third period to make it 4-1.

Buffalo next plays the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.


  • With just five total shots between the teams in the third period, the Sabres and Lightning tied a Sabres record for fewest combined shots in a period.
  • The record was initially set on March 14, 1972 vs. Minnesota and matched three times before tonight (Dec. 23, 1972 vs. Los Angeles; Jan. 13, 1974 vs. St. Louis; March 17, 2002 at Florida).
  • The Sabres allowed three Lightning shots in the period, the fewest since allowing two to Tampa Bay in the second period on Dec. 2, 2014.
  • The Sabres outshot the Lightning 31-22 tonight, marking the 10th time Buffalo has outshot its opponent in the team's first 13 games.
  • The Sabres are 4-6-0 when outshooting their opponents this season.
  • The Sabres outshot their opponents just 10 times all of last season, finishing the season 5-5-0 in those games.
  • Jack Eichel scored in his third consecutive home game tonight and finished tonight's game tied for third in the NHL with five home goals this season.
  • With the start tonight, Linus Ullmark became the first goaltender to make three straight team starts in his first NHL season since Ryan Miller did so from Dec. 31, 2002 to Jan. 10, 2003.
