Vote in the player grades polls for the last week

NHL: Columbus Blue Jackets at Buffalo Sabres
Robin Lehner makes a save
Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Your Three Stars from last week: Jack Eichel, Ryan O’Reilly and the power play. The Three Goats are Nicolas Deslauriers, Dmitry Kulikov, and Dan Byslma. Here is the LINK to the spreadsheet with all of this season’s results.


It took a return to form for Robin Lehner to get the Buffalo Sabres out of their slump and finally win a game. Jack Eichel’s points streak ended at eleven games though he promptly jumped back on the points horse the next game.

As always, we’ve got all the forwards and defensemen who played over the past week in the grading.

We’re sticking with the Corsi For % as well the stats beyond just the goals, assists and +/-. For Dan Bylsma we’ve added the team’s overall Corsi For % as a measurable stat.

Rate the players’, PP, PK and coach’s performances for these games -

Buffalo Sabres 3-6 Philadelphia Flyers

Columbus Blue Jackets 4-3 Buffalo Sabres

Buffalo Sabres 5-3 Columbus Blue Jackets
