Eric Staal had a second-period goal during Buffalo's 4-3 shootout win versus New Jersey. He scored on his only shot on goal during the game in 16:08 minutes of ice time.
The veteran center now has three goals and two assists in nine games played with the Sabres. After years of being the number one center in Minnesota, Staal is a sneaky good fantasy option in a second-line center role with Buffalo. Most opponents will be sending their top defensive/checking lines after the top line led by Jack Eichel and Taylor Hall.
