Canucks attempt to foil Sabres in Buffalo

No Jack Eichel, no problem.

With their star center's future in limbo because of a herniated disk in his neck and a likely trade, the Buffalo Sabres enter Tuesday night's game with the visiting Vancouver Canucks with a surprising share of first place in the Atlantic Division thanks to opening the season with consecutive wins for the second time in three seasons.

The Sabres, who finished last in the East Division last season with a 15-34-7 record, including an 18-game losing streak and just 37 points, opened this season with an impressive 5-1 victory over the 2021 Stanley Cup finalist Montreal Canadiens on Thursday and followed that with a 2-1 shootout win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.
