    Sabres’ Olofsson sets NHL record with another power play goal

    Sabres’ Olofsson sets NHL record with another power play goal

    The Buffalo Sabres continued their early season surge on Monday with a convincing and thorough 4-0 dismantling of the highly disappointing Dallas Stars.

    During the Sabres rookie forward Victor Olofsson (also known as Victor Goal-ofsson) scored yet another goal to open the scoring early in the second period.

    It was Olofsson’s fifth goal of the season and the seventh of his young career dating back to his debut during the 2018-19 season. Why is this goal noteworthy? Because all seven of Olofsson’s goals in the NHL have been scored on the power play. That makes him the first player in NHL history to open their career with seven consecutive power play goals (since power play goals became an official stat during the 1933-34 seaosn).

    The Sabres’ power play has been dominant through the first six games of the season and is one of the biggest reasons they are off to such a strong start at 5-0-1. Obviously they can not rely on their power play unit to keep scoring at a 42 percent rate (as they are through Monday’s game), but it is not like that is the only source of offense. They also have 14 goals during 5-on-5 play through the first six games. No matter the situation, they are finding ways to score goals.

    This start is no doubt creating a lot of excitement in Buffalo, but there is probably an equal amount of skepticism after the way the 2018-19 season unfolded. Even so, the Sabres and their fans have to be thrilled with the current record and place in the standings. Now they just need to do something they have not done in almost a decade and find a way to keep building on it.

    With the Nats playing so well, I only saw the opener all the way through. I saw most of the Canadiens game but only highlights of the other games. Today I finally got to watch the whole game before the Nats.

    Olofsson can play. The PP is almost unfair. You’ve got Eichel on the left, Reinhart down low, Risto or Dahlin up high, then Olofsson on the right. Everyone was just collapsing on Eichel and Reinhart and Olofsson was wide open. Eventually they’ll collapse on Olofsson and then Eichel or Reinhart will be open.
