    BUFFALO Authentic Mikael Backlund Jersey , N.Y. (AP) — Sam Reinhart returned after getting his lip stitched up to lead the Buffalo Sabres in a comeback victory.Reinhart tied it with 1:47 left in regulation, 40 seconds after he set up Jeff Skinner’s goal, and Jack Eichel and Casey Mittelstadt scored in the shootout to lift the Sabres over the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 on Saturday.“We always felt like we were in the game and that’s something we’ve really changed this year,” said Reinhart, who spent the latter half of the first period in the dressing room getting stitches in his upper lip.Buffalo has won all eight games this season in which Reinhart has a point, while going 1-6-2 when he has not gotten on the scoresheet.“Reino played awesome,” Eichel said. “I thought this was one of the best games I’ve ever seen him play. He was dominant.”Eichel also went to the dressing room to get treated for an undisclosed injury midway through first period but returned eight minutes into the second.With goalie Carter Hutton pulled for an extra attacker, Reinhart set up Skinner for his team-leading 12th goal with 2:27 left, then tied it when he put back a rebound from Rasmus Ristolainen’s slap shot at the left edge of the crease.Nathan Beaulieu also scored, and Ristolainen and Rasmus Dahlin each had two assists in the Sabres’ second straight overtime win.Hutton made 36 saves and stopped two shots in the shootout, including a final denial moments after Mittelstadt’s go-ahead score.“The resiliency in this group Mike Smith Jersey , that never-out-of-it attitude, the ability to continue to fight, it’s tremendous,” Eichel said.Loui Eriksson had a goal and an assist for the Canucks, who are 4-0-2 in their last six games. Jake Virtanen and Erik Gudbranson also scored, Antoine Roussel had two assists and Jacob Markstrom stopped 34 shots in the third leg of a six-game trip.The Canucks also squandered a two-goal lead in Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout loss in Detroit.“We’re playing some good hockey. It’s just unfortunate to give up that point,” Canucks alternate captain Bo Horvat said. “We had a pretty solid game for 55 minutes. It’s just a matter of closing it out.”Gudbranson gave the Canucks a 3-1 lead on a long shot from the point 3:41 into the third.The Canucks scored twice in a span of 1:10 late in the second period to take a 2-1 advantage. Markus Granlund sent a backhand pass from the end board to Eriksson in front for a tying goal with 1:44 remaining in the period. Virtanen skated around defenseman Zach Bogosian and slid a backhand from the right circle into the far corner for his seventh goal of the season to put Vancouver ahead.Buffalo gained an early lead when Kyle Okposo threaded a long pass from the point to Beaulieu for a tap-in 4:43 into the first.The Canucks were without Brock Boeser for a third straight game. Coach Travis Green said Boeser will miss the remaining three games of the team’s trip while he recovers from a groin injury. A Calder Trophy finalist last season, Boeser is listed as week-to-week but “will be fine,” Green said prior to Saturday’s game.NOTES: This was the first meeting between Swedish rookie defensemen Dahlin and Elias Pettersson. The Sabres drafted Dahlin with the No. 1 overall pick this year, and Pettersson was drafted fifth overall in 2017 by the Canucks. Pettersson entered Saturday leading all rookies with 10 goals and 17 points. … Buffalo traded D Taylor Fedun to Dallas for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft. The pick is conditional on Fedun playing at least 25 regular season and playoff games for the Stars. Fedun has played with the Sabres’ minor league club this season. … Gudbranson extended his career-best point streak to five games. … Sabres F Zemgus Girgensons was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. He was replaced on the fourth line by Tage Thompson.UP NEXTCanucks: At New York Rangers on Monday night.Sabres: Host Tampa Bay on Tuesday night. A winning streak after a slow start can do wonders for a team’s confidence. Ending a long skid against a certain opponent should do more.On Saturday night at Rogers Place, the Edmonton Oilers go for their first win over the Nashville Predators in more than 4 1/2 years.Since recording a 5-1 victory on March 18 Sean Monahan Jersey , 2014, in Edmonton, the Oilers have gone 0-10-2 versus Nashville. That includes two shutouts among five straight regulation losses.Article continues below ...Edmonton (3-2-0), which is looking for its fourth consecutive win, has yet to hold a lead after one period in any game this season. The club can thank Cam Talbot for the recent surge as he enjoys a resurgence.After a career-best 42 wins and 2.39 goals-against average two seasons ago, Talbot slumped to 31 victories and his GAA rose to 3.02 last season. He credits staying confident early for his recent success as he’s stopped 79 of 86 shots while winning three straight starts.“I’m just going out there and trying to give us a chance,” Talbot said Friday. “I know that if I can get us through that first 10-15 minutes, we seem to take over the game after that point.”Having Connor McDavid on the ice also gives the Oilers a huge confidence boost. He collected two assists, one coming on Leon Draisaitl’s game-winner 37 seconds into overtime, as Edmonton opened its home schedule Thursday night with its third straight win, 3-2 over the Boston Bruins.McDavid TJ Brodie Jersey , the reigning two-time scoring champion, has four goals and seven assists through five games. He also scored goals in each of the Oilers’ last two matchups with the Preds.Still, coach Todd McLellan praised Talbot, who stopped all 12 shots in the opening 20 minutes and finished with 27 saves against the Bruins.“Talbs was essential in the first period,” McLellan told the team’s official website on Thursday. “We were flat, we were frozen. Once we got going and once we got skating and supporting puck movement, we were a lot better.“Without Cam’s performance in the first period, we don’t get a chance to come back.”But Talbot hasn’t beaten the Predators since joining Edmonton as a free agent in 2015 despite solid statistics. In seven starts, the 31-year-old is 0-6-1 with a 2.89 GAA.Nashville (6-1-0) opened its road trip through Alberta with a 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames on Friday night. The Preds’ lone loss of the season came in their home opener on Oct. 9 against the FlamesPekka Rinne stopped 15 of 18 shots Friday before being lifted early in the third period after colliding with winger Kevin Fiala. According to the team’s official website, Predators coach Peter Laviolette did not have an update on Rinne after the game.Juuse Saros made nine saves the rest of the way to get the win, and will likely start with games on back-to-back nights as well as to give the 35-year-old Vezina Trophy winner some extended rest.“Just because we have the backup in doesn’t mean we can’t win Womens Travis Hamonic Jersey ,” defenseman Yannick Weber told the team’s official website on Thursday. “Juuse gives us a chance to win every game he plays. We’ve seen it already this year, too, and we have a lot of confidence in him.”Saros, a 23-year-old Finn who defeated the New York Islanders twice in his only two appearances of the season before Friday, has stopped 55 of 60 shots.He also made a career-high 46 saves in a 4-0 win over the Oilers on Dec. 14, 2017, in Edmonton.Rinne is 20-6-1 with a 2.31 GAA and four shutouts in 29 career starts against the Oilers.With a goal and assist Friday, Nashville’s Filip Forsberg has four goals and two assists in a four-game streak. Two of the three career goals the winger has scored at Rogers Place have come on the power play.
