The Golden Knights extended their win streak to eight games with a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night. Reilly Smith scored his second goal of the game in overtime to seal the win, which improved Vegas to 12-2-0 on the season, the most points in the NHL at 24. Jack Eichel has 15 points in 14 games. It also looks like a resurgence for some of Vegas’ top players early in the franchise — Williams Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith. The trio is back skating on the second line and have combined for 34 points (17 goals, 17 assists) this season.
The Sabres were looking like one of the surprises early in the season. A three-game losing streak has put a stop to those talks lately. Buffalo lost 5-3 to the Hurricanes and Lightning before dropping a bad game to the Coyotes 4-1. Starter Eric Comrie may have to cede starts to veteran Craig Anderson at some point. Anderson has a 2.25 GAA and .925 SV% in four starts this season.
