The Sabres top line of Jack Eichel, Jason Pominville and Jeff Skinner are one of the hottest things going right now as two of those players are seated firmly in the top five in scoring over the last two weeks. Eichel is surprisingly the odd man out here as he has lit the lamp once to go along with eight assists over the last six games. He leads the team with 13 assists and 17 points while Skinner’s nine goals is tops on the team. Casey Mittelstadt comes up from the second line to join the deadly trio on a power play unit that has scored seven power play goals in 22 attempts over the last six games. Conor Sheary and Sam Reinhart skate as his wingers while Kyle Okposo, Evan Rodrigues and Vladimir Sobotka serve as the team’s third line. Rasmus Dahlin looks to be out for tonight’s game with a foot injury so that will open the door for Rasmus Ristolainen and Jake McCabe to get a few more power play opportunities. McCabe has registered a goal and six assists on just 12 shots while Ristolainen has grabbed a goal and five assists on 33 shots.
