The last-place Buffalo Sabres are suddenly playing havoc with the Eastern Conference's top teams -- and without their top offensive threat, Jack Eichel, no less. Ryan O'Reilly scored a goal and added two assists in a 5-3 win over the East-leading Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night. It was O'Reilly's second consecutive three-point outing after he also had a goal and two assists in a 5-4 loss to Colorado on Sunday. The boost in production comes after Eichel sprained his right ankle in a 4-2 win over Boston on Saturday, an injury that will cost him between four and six weeks. Sam Reinhart scored twice, including an empty-netter, and Scott Wilson and Nicholas Baptiste also scored as the Sabres never trailed.
