Skinner seals Sabres comeback in 4-3 OT win over Kings

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Rather than lament another sloppy performance after being booed off the ice at the end of the second period, Jack Eichel and the Buffalo Sabres decided to do something about it.

Eichel scored and had a hand in setting up Jeff Skinner's power-play goal 1:49 into overtime, and the Sabres overcame a two-goal deficit in the third to beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 on Tuesday night.

"Coming in here after 40 minutes and you're down two goals, and you just had a couple of days off and you're at home, there's got to be some type of emotional response from the room," said Eichel, noting the Sabres were also smarting from a 6-2 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. "And I think we showed that in the third period."
