Ryan O'Reilly picked up two assists with a plus-2 rating in 19:24 of ice time in Tuesday's road win against the Avalanche.

Seeing a few former teammates and skating in his old stomping grounds fired up O'Reilly, as he snapped a six-game scoreless skid. It was O'Reilly's first multi-point game since Nov. 2, and just the fourth of the season overall. He'll need to do this a few more times before earning the trust of fantasy owners again.

Kyle Okposo and Victor Antipin registered the assists on Buffalo's only goal.

Alas, it wasn't enough for the Sabres as they allowed a game-tying goal in the third and a game-winner in OT. The forward now has six goals and 13 points this season.

He's currently riding a three-game point streak.

Ryan O'Reilly has one assist in three games this season.

"In all three games, I've been invisible," said O'Reilly. "I haven't been creating, haven't been tough defensively. I'm just out there skating around. It's not good enough. I've got to regroup here. I wish I had an answer for you." Buffalo has gone winless in three contests to open 2017-18 and O'Reilly isn't the only player who has underperformed so far.
Oct 10 - 10:12 AM

Ryan O'Reilly, Kyle Okposo, Jack Eichel and Zach Bogosian will be Buffalo's four alternate captains in 2017-18.

"We're going to rotate them," coach Phil Housley said. "Our coaches sat down and really evaluated the situation and we felt the guys that we named we have total confidence in. Just talking to (general manager Jason Botterill), he was very comfortable with the decision so we named the four alternate captains at this point. There's a lot of good leaders in that team and we're going to rely on all of them to be a part of it."

Sep 27 - 10:18 PM

Ryan O'Reilly is a top candidate to be Buffalo's next captain.

"Leadership is a big part, hold everyone accountable, myself being accountable more, have that mentality," O'Reilly said. "It's all of us together, and speak up when things don't work. I think as a group we have to have more dialogue between each other and also with the coaching staff, too. As a group we have to go to them and say, 'OK, we're struggling with this. We need to change and do this.' We have to be confident doing it. I think me and a few other guys will take control on that." He intends to be more vocal this season and wants to be more consistent on the ice after he had 55 points (20 goals, 35 assists) in 72 games last year.
