Surging Sabres not fearing repeat of last year's collapse

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) With a new coach, an influx of talent and this being a new season, Jack Eichel doesn't buy into fears the hot-starting Buffalo Sabres are due for a familiar collapse.

Ten games in, the Sabres are leading the Eastern Conference with an 8-1-1 record to match their best start since 2009-10 following a 4-3 overtime win over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night.

And yet, it's difficult to forget what happened last year, when Buffalo was leading the NHL with a 17-6-2 record following a 10-game winning streak before proceeding to win just 16 of its final 57 games.
