BUFFALO, New York — One day after being named as one of the top athletes under the age of 30, St. Louis Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo joined Al MacInnis (127) as just the second defensemen in team history to score 100 goals with the franchise.
The goal, his first-ever against the Buffalo Sabres, came on a wrist shot with 16:08 left in the 3rd period, to tie the game 2-2.
Sabres top Blues 5-2
Jack Eichel scored two goals to extend his NHL-leading point streak to 14 games, and the Buffalo Sabres beat the St. Louis Blues 5-2 on Tuesday night.
