Buchnevich dished out two assists in Thursday's 6-5 overtime win over the Capitals.

Buchnevich will be relied upon for offense down the stretch as New York's top option at right wing with Chris Kreider sidelined by a fractured foot, and the early results are encouraging. The Russian winger has a four-game point streak going since the game in which Kreider went down, and he almost had his second goal in this stretch but rang a grade-A chance off the pipe on the power play in the third period.
