Eichel OT winner wiped out by penalty in Vancouver

Recommended Posts

After a valiant effort to tie the score with 6 attackers the Buffalo Sabres appeared to have won the game in Vancouver on a great play by Jack Eichel.  But it did not stand.  A penalty to Jokoharu or however you spell his name?  He should be taken out and Lawrence Pilut should be called up from Rochester at once.  I have not checked todays lineup yet but Krueger cannot be happy with the penalty that killed Eichel's winner?  I believe Krueger has shown way to much faith in this guy from Chicago.  I am NO FAN

Bad timing for sure by Jokiharju taking an interference penalty, but we are talking about a 20-yr old defenseman who has, for the most part, played very well for Buffalo.

He projects to be a very nice two way player....not as offensively prolific as Rasmus Dahlin, but should ultimately settle in as a nice 2-4 slot d-man.
I wouldn't be so quick to give up on him.
