When Jack Eichel went down, the rest of the team stepped up. There were the usual goal scorers – a beauty breakaway from Evander Kane, set up by Sam Reinhart. There were the unusual suspects, like Scott Wilson who had a goal and an assist for just his third career multi-point game. It wasn't anything special or flashy, but when their star player went down, the Sabres responded the right way and came out of the TD Garden with a 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Sunday. "I thought everybody stepped their game up when Jack went down," Sabres coach Phil Housley said. So first, let's start with the bad news: With 6:52 left in the first period, Eichel went behind the net to play the puck, but his right leg folded awkwardly underneath him as Matt Grzelcyk closed in. Eichel could not put weight on his right leg as he skated off into the dressing room.
