Ryan O'Reilly recorded two goals and one assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Ottawa.

He picked up one goal and one assist on Buffalo's power play, which looked revitalized with Jack Eichel back in the lineup. The Sabres went 3-for-5 on the man advantage Tuesday night. O'Reilly had one assist in his previous six outings. Getting Eichel back gives the Sabres much more depth and it should help free up more opportunities for O'Reilly because teams can't solely focus on shutting him down anymore.

The Buffalo Sabres have scored two goals or less in 12 of 13 games this month.

Yikes! That's an embarrassing stat. "It’s tough to sit there and say, ‘As a team we have to be better,’ when it’s myself and scoring goals and giving ourselves life early," forward Ryan O’Reilly said. "We can’t wait until the third to score a goal. We’ve got to produce at some point." O'Reilly is one of the players who needs to contribute more. He has just one goal in his last 12 contests. This team definitely misses Jack Eichel.

Ryan O'Reilly is expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday night.

Coach Dan Bylsma officially called O'Reilly a "game-time decision," but you should feel free to put him back on your active roster. "I feel great the last two days," O'Reilly said after Wednesday's morning skate. "Back to 100 percent so it will be nice to get back out there. It feels like it's been forever." He is projected to center the top line between Matt Moulson and Kyle Okposo.

Nov 12 - 5:28 PM

Ryan O'Reilly re-aggravated a middle-body injury that forced him to miss Wednesday's game against Ottawa.

He returned to the lineup on Friday night against the Devils, but in hindsight, that probably wasn't the best idea. "It wasn't like he went into the game playing with an injury," head coach Dan Bylsma said. "It wasn't a battle-through-it. He felt find to go. I haven't talked to him other than to know he re-aggravated it in the faceoff circle in the third period. Obviously it's day to day at this point."
