► Team USA takes on Sweden on Monday with puck drop set for 9 AM ET. NHL Network will air the game live.

Looking back
Jack Eichel recorded an NHL career-best night with four points—two goals and two assists—as Buffalo doubled up the Bruins, 6-3 in the All American and Hobey Baker Award winner’s first visit to TD Garden since last season.  Both goals came in the third period: the first on a deflection off a defender’s skate and the second on a 150 foot shot into the empty net when Boston pulled its goalie. Eichel, who earned first-star honors, now has 20 points (11G, 9A) in 35 games.

Looking ahead
2018 recruit Jake Wise scored a pair of goals for Central Catholic, but the Raiders fell in overtime, 4-3, to Pope Paul in the Pete Frates Classic in North Andover.
Wise, who scored 16 goals and 26 assists as a freshman to earn SB Nation’s Massachusetts High School Rookie of the Year honors, is one of the top US skaters among ’00 birthdates. He’s expected to join the NTDP U17s next season and was a guest of USA Hockey at Agganis Arena earlier this year when the U18s played BU.
