Sabres' Ryan O'Reilly: Racks up three points in victory over Sens
O'Reilly scored twice -- one on the power play -- on four shots and tacked on an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 victory against Ottawa.
Coming into Tuesday, the Sabres were averaging just 1.81 goals per game, last in the league. However, the team welcomed back Jack Eichel, immediately boosting its offensive prowess. The 25-year-old O'Reilly hadn't reached the box score in his two games since missing five contests with an oblique injury, but the third time was a charm. He's behind last year's 60-point clip, but Eichel's return should help O'Reilly pick up the pace.
