GDT: Dallas visits Buffalo Sabres Oct. 14th, 3pm ET, MSG and WGR550

Your Buffalo Sabres will attempt to continue their opening 5 game point streak against the Dallas Stars this afternoon. They are also undefeated at home so far and can take the overall lead in points this season in the Eastern Conference with a win. At this point in the season only the Carolina Hurricanes have more points in the Eastern Conference with a game in hand. Another hard to imagine thing that's happened this season is every line 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in whatever order you please has had a player have a multiple point game this year. Dallas has had a rough start to the year but is still a dangerous team. Curtis Lazar was called up presumably to take Sheary's spot on the roster for today's game and the upcoming West Coast trip.

THIS DATE IN SABRES HISTORY

  • The Sabres are 8-10-1 all-time on October 14.
  • October 14, 1971: Mike Robitaille scores his first goal as a member of the Sabres.
  • October 14, 2006: Chris Drury records his first and only hat trick in a Sabres uniform in a 7-4 win over the New York Rangers.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

  • The Sabres are 4-0-1 through five games. It’s the first time Buffalo has started a season with points in five straight games since the team went 6-0-2 through its first eight games of the 2008-09 season.
  • Buffalo is looking to start the season with wins in each of the team’s first four home games for the first time since the 2006-07 season.
  • Through four games, the Sabres have already gotten points from 15 different players this season. Jack Eichel (3+4), Rasmus Dahlin (1+6), Victor Olofsson (4+1) and Sam Reinhart (2+3) have all tallied five or more points through the team’s first five contests.
  • Linus Ullmark has allowed two or fewer goals in each of his three career games against the Stars, making 77 saves on 82 shots (.939 save percentage) in those contests.

VIC-O MODE

  • All four of Victor Olofsson’s goals this season have come on the power play, good for second in the league in power-play goals entering play Sunday. He also led all rookies in goals (4) and shots (14), tied for first in points (5), and led rookie forwards in ice time per game (18:11).
  • Since he made his NHL debut on March 28, 2019 vs. Detroit, no NHL player has scored more power-play goals than Olofsson’s six in 11 games played. He has tied an NHL record by becoming the fourth player in NHL history to score each of his first four career goals with a man advantage, joining Craig Norwich, Sylvain Turgeon and Jeff Norton.

PLAYING WITH POWER

  • The Sabres entered play Sunday with the No. 1 power play in the league, converting on a league-high eight of their 19 power plays this season (42.1%).
  • According to NaturalStatTrick.com, Buffalo also ranked among the league’s leaders in shot generation with the man advantage, averaging 2.50 shots (3rd) and 4.00 shot attempts (4th) per two minutes of power-play time.

Continuing the 50th Anniversary IMO the greatest Goalies in Sabres History: All stats are Sabre records:

I will be on an airplane for this one and will check NHL.TV on a layover.  I’m returning from a family trip that began with temperatures 50 degrees colder than home and ended with EMTs in a hotel room.  All is well.  The totality is beauty and joy that leaves me grateful and without words, yet.  I have a Things That Are Awesome post coming!
