Evander Kane gave the Sabres their first lead of the night and his goal wound up being the game winner in a 5-3 win over the Jackets on Saturday.
The Sabres trailed 3-0 at the end of the first period. They answered with three of their own in the second, and the difference would come in the third. Kane’s goal at 17:31 in that period did not give the Jackets much time to respond. Jack Eichel sealed the deal with four seconds remaining when he sunk a shot into an empty net. Mar 11 - 9:49 PM

Evander Kane notched a goal and an assist in a 6-3 loss to Philadelphia

He scored his 24th marker of the season during a first-period power play and added an assist on Jack Eichel's second goal of the game. Kane has been a consistently productive player for the Sabres since December after a very slow start. He has 10 goals in the last 14 contests.

With Kyle Okposo (ribs) out of the lineup, look for Evander Kane to take his spot on the top power play unit.

Kane dealt with some injuries at the start of the year, but he's been playing a lot better of late. The Sabres forward has a goal in each of his last two games and he's found the back of the net in five of his last seven games. At even-strength, he's expected to skate on a line with Ryan O'Reilly and Brian Gionta.

Evander Kane has another year left on his deal and talks on a contract extension can begin July 1.

"I'd be open to that. I'm not sure I'm going to do that," GM Tim Murray said. "There's a lot of bridges to cross before that time. But would I be open to it in a scenario where a couple things he has going on off the ice go away and stuff like that, absolutely." He still seems to be a bit reluctant to commit to Kane even though the winger is having a solid season on the ice. Kane leads the Sabres with 22 goals and he has collected 33 points in 51 games.

Evander Kane (illness) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday nigh.

Coach Dan Bylsma said that Kane is "a little bit under the weather." Kane has produced a pair of two-goal performances over the last four games and his offense would be a key loss for Sabres if he is unable to play.

Evander Kane has been one of the NHL hottest goal scorers for the last few months.

Kane has scored 18 goals in Buffalo's last 32 games after struggling to start the season, due in part, to a rib injury. The talented winger got the chance to play alongside Jack Eichel against Toronto Saturday night and scored two goals and was dangerous all night long. Needless to say, Kane is a must start at the moment.

It will be interesting to see if Buffalo tries to move Evander Kane at the trade deadline.

The team may decide to sell high on him now if they feel he won't be a core part of the future. Buffalo was looking to deal him over the summer because of his issues off the ice. "The off-ice stuff, we've worked through that and we continue to work with him. It will never be forgotten obviously, nor do we want to forget," said GM Tim Murray. "You learn from mistakes. But on the ice, what I see now is what we traded for I think. I'm a fan of his game." Kane has amassed 23 points in the last 32 games.
