  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Adds another goal in loss

    Tuch scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Stars.

    Tuch opened the scoring 4:09 into the first period Tuesday, deflecting a Henri Jokiharju shot past Jake Oettinger to give Buffalo an early 1-0 lead. It's just the second goal in 10 games for Tuch, though the 27-year-old winger's been productive with 12 assists in that span. Tuch's up to 21 goals and 58 points through 72 games this season. While he's been solid, it's a significant step back from last year's 36-goal, 79-point campaign.

Tuch has found the scoresheet in eight of the last nine games, racking up two goals and 13 points, and Tuesday's goal was his 20th of the season, marking the third time in his career the 27-year-old has reached that plateau.

  • Sabres' Alex Tuch: Tallies in comeback win

    Tuch scored in Buffalo's 3-2 overtime win against Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Tuch tallied his 17th goal of the campaign. It would be easy to see this season as a disappointment after he scored 36 goals last year. However, his 13 shooting percentage is still above Tuch's career average, and with him playing on the top line he could be in line for a productive stretch to finish the season.

    Tuch managed a pair of assists Thursday in Montreal, snapping a four-game pointless streak.
