From the Locker Room: Sabres-Blackhawks

Read what Jack Eichel and Anders Nilsson told the media after the Sabres fell to the Blackhawks in overtime 4-3. 

Jack Eichel
"Maybe we sat back a little bit. That's kind of a tough one. You come into a building that's not easy to win in and you go into the 3rd tied, and find a way to get a lead and play with it, and piss it away. It's something we've done a lot of. It's that little extra. Too many overtime losses this year. It's painful."

"You have a chance to steal 4 points on a road trip against two very, very good teams. We get 3, but the 4th is there. They add up. It's definitely a tough one. We wouln't even be in the situation to have an opportunity to win the game if it wasn't for our goalie."

"Our goalie played great, we played pretty good in the 2nd, I think. We were able to generate a little bit in their zone. We had some good opportunities in the 3rd. Tough to swallow that one. You're two minutes away from beating the Blackhawks in their building on a road trip."

Anders Nilsson
"I felt pretty good in the 1st. It's just that they came out hard and pushed us back on our heels a little bit."

"Obviously you have a lot of good players and a lot of skill guys and we knew about that. That line with Kane and Panaran, obviously have some very good skill."
