The Buffalo Sabres won their first contest of the 2015-16 campaign as they defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-2 on this nice Columbus Day in the 716. Rookie sensation and savior Jack Eichel scored his second career goal, which turned out to be the game winner. First year head coach Dan Bylsma picked up his first victory as well and called Eichel’s goal “memorable”. Take a look at the 18 year old and his effort to keep the puck in the zone and then put it into the net.
The Sabres player their first game away from Buffalo when they travel to Florida on Thursday where they take on the Panthers, and then Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night before returning home to host the Toronto Maple Leafs.
