Eichel scores in debut, Sabres lose 3-1

Eichel takes the ice at the Sabres development camp.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – Kyle Turris scored twice and Ottawa won a coach’s challenge to overturn a Buffalo goal in the Senators’ victory over the Sabres.

The outcome was essentially decided with 9:26 remaining, when Buffalo’s Evander Kane scored on a wraparound that would have tied it at 2. Senators coach Dave Cameron challenged the goal, and a video review showed Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons was offside.

Kane’s disallowed goal came 1:23 after Sabres 18-year-old rookie center Jack Eichel scored a power-play goal. Curtis Lazar sealed it with an empty-netter with 1:04 left. Craig Anderson made 26 saves for the victory.
