Evander Kane posted a goal with two assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss at Vegas.

Ryan O'Reilly picked up a pair of power-play goals in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss at Vegas.

The veteran center had failed to find the back of the net over his first six outings, and he had just one assist over the first five contests. However, he is starting to make up for lost time, rewarding the patience of those using him on a regular basis in fantasy pools.

Chad Johnson yielded five goals on just 31 shots in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss in Vegas.

Johnson was given a new lease on life when the Sabres offense erased a 4-1 deficit in the final 10 minutes of regulation, but the netminder couldn't take advantage. He gave up the game-winning goal to David Perron at 3:52 of the extra session to give Johnson the loss.

Kyle Okposo (illness) will play in Tuesday's game against the Golden Knights.

Okposo has missed the last two games because of the illness. The winger is off to a rough start this season, as he has no goals, no points and a minus-6 rating in four games this season. "Basically sitting in a hotel room for 2 1/2 straight days is not good stuff," Okposo said. "It's good to feel like a human being again being out and about and resuming normal activities."
Oct 17 - 3:47 PM

Chad Johnson will get the start in Tuesday's game against Vegas.

This will be Johnson's second consecutive start. He stopped 25 of 26 shots in last weekend's win over Anaheim, so head coach Phil Housley is going back to him tonight. Johnson has a 3.67 goals-against-average and a .875 save percentage this season.
Oct 17 - 3:33 PM

Jason Pominville has been given an extra assist after a league review.

Pominville was given a helper on a goal by Zemgus Girgensons in Buffalo's 4-2 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday. He also had an assist on Jack Eichel's second tally of the year in that contest. Pominville has four goals and seven points through six outings this campaign.
Oct 17 - 9:47 AM

Sam Reinhart has been credited with his first goal of the season following a scoring change by the NHL.

Reinhart was credited with the game-winning goal from Sunday's 3-1 victory in Anaheim and Benoit Pouliot, who initially had the marker, was given the lone assist. It was Reinhart's first point in six matches this season.
Oct 17 - 9:42 AM

Kyle Okposo (illness) may be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

Okposo has missed the last two games due to an illness. "He's feeling better," said coach Phil Housley. "He's able to keep some food down, rode the bike today. He's moving in a good direction."
Oct 16 - 10:06 AM

Jacob Josefson appeared to suffer an ankle injury in Sunday's win over Anaheim.
