Eichel aims to extend streak as Sabres host Predators

Captain Jack Eichel will attempt to match Patrick Kane for the NHL's longest point streak of the season on Thursday when the Buffalo Sabres host the Nashville Predators.

Eichel extended his career-high point streak to 14 games by scoring the eventual winning goal 5:46 into the third period of Tuesday's 5-2 victory over St. Louis. The NHL's Third Star of the Week sealed the win by tallying into the empty net, boosting his point total to 25 (12 goals, 13 assists) since his 14-game point streak began with a career-best four-goal performance against Ottawa on Nov. 16.

Eichel has reached the 20-goal plateau in just his 32nd game this season, putting him on pace to become the Sabres' first 50-goal scorer since Alexander Mogilny (76) and Pat Lafontaine (53) accomplished the feat during the 1992-93 campaign.
