Boston-knægten Eichel sænkede Boston Bruins

Buffalo Sabres-profilen Jack Eichel, som klubben valgte med andetvalget i sommerens draft, er vokset op i Boston-området. Lørdag var han tilbage i Boston, hvor han med fire point sikrede Sabres en overraskende sejr.

Gæsterne vandt kampen med 6-3 efter et fremragende comeback. Bruins gik ind til tredje periode med en 2-1-føring i ryggen, og den udbyggede hjemmeholdet syv minutter inde i perioden. Buffalo gav dog ikke op, og hele fem Sabres-scoringer i den sidste halvdel af tredje periode vendte kampen på hovedet.

Jack Eichel, som i sidste sæson spillede for Boston University, diskede op med sin pointmæssigt bedste NHL-kamp nogensinde. Den 19-årige amerikaner scorede to gange og lavede to assists, så det var fuldt fortjent, at han blev kåret til kampens spiller.

Eichel havde nok ikke de store kvaler med at sænke holdet fra sin hjemstavn. Den talentfulde center var nemlig fan af Bruins’ ærkerivaler fra Montreal Canadiens, selvom han voksede op i Massachusetts.
