Watch: Boychuk Rams Eichel into Boards
The Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk rode Jack Eichel into the boards during third period action of Friday's Islanders-Sabres game. It appears that Boychuk immediately felt sorry about his actions so he spent some quality time laying on Eichel and telling him he was sorry. Eichel was okay, Boychuk got two for boarding and the Sabres didn't retaliate. All is merry in Buffalo. It's 2-2 with less than eight minutes remaining between the two Eastern Conference bottom feeders. Update: Eichel left the game temporarily to be assessed, but returned shortly therefter.
