Sharpen Up: November 28, 2016

by Chris Ryndak @ChrisRyndak /

You probably have 90 tabs open as you shop for online deals so thanks for making Sharpen Up one of them. If you missed us over the weekend, don't worry, we'll get you caught up. 

Here's what you need to know.

Coming off a 3-1 loss in Washington on Friday, the Sabres returned to the ice on Sunday for practice at HarborCenter. Jack Eichel once again skated with the team as he continues to recover from that high-ankle sprain sustained the day before the season opener.

"I think we're day-to-day," Dan Bylsma said. "I'd like him to practice another 20 times. Jack's just really taking it day-by-day with his recovery and where he's at with his progression."

Buffalo will practice today and then head out for Ottawa. They'll play the Senators tomorrow night at Canadian Tire Centre at 7:30 p.m.
