BUFFALO, NY (AP) — Jack Eichel scored the go-ahead goal on an end-to-end rush 7:57 into the third period in the Buffalo Sabres' 4-2 win over the slumping Vegas Golden Knights.

The goal was Eichel's career-high-matching 28th of the season and came in a game in which he added an assist to become Buffalo's first player in 27 years to reach the 60-point mark in 46 or fewer games.

Sam Reinhart had a goal and two assists, and Kyle Okposo and Curtis Lazar, with an empty-netter, also scored.

Reilly Smith and Tomas Nosek scored for the Golden Knights, who have lost four straight.
