Eichel (lower body) was held without a point and registered three shots and three hits in Sunday's 3-0 loss to the Flyers. Buffalo's franchise center returned after missing the previous two games with his injury, but he failed to produce a point for the fourth time in his last seven games. It's been a frustrating season for Eichel, who has just two goals and 12 assists with a minus-7 rating through 17 contests. He'll try to get on track Tuesday against the Rangers.
Eichel (lower body) will play in Sunday's game versus the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Eichel is back in action after spending the last two games in the press box.

Eichel (lower body) centered the first line during warmups ahead of Sunday's game versus the Flyers, John Vogl of The Athletic reports. The Sabres said they'd reveal their final verdict on Eichel's status after warmups. He's certainly on the right track after handling his typical role during warmups, so all indications are that he'll play Sunday.
Eichel (lower body) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game versus the Flyers, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Eichel has missed the last two games, including Saturday's loss to the Flyers, but head coach Ralph Krueger is leaving open the possibility that the superstar will return Sunday. The 24-year-old produced 14 points over the first 16 games prior to this injury. The final verdict on Eichel's status will be made after warmups.
Eichel (lower body) won't play Saturday against Philadelphia, Heather Engel of NHL.com reports. Eichel's considered day-to-day with his lower-body injury, so although he won't be available Saturday, he could return for Sunday's rematch with the Flyers. Curtis Lazar is expected to skate on the Sabres' top line until Eichel is ready to return.
