Eau Claire native McCabe tallies two assists for Sabres

BOSTON — Eau Claire native Jake McCabe had a pair of third-period assists as the Buffalo Sabres erased a three-goal deficit to come back to defeat the Boston Bruins 5-4 in overtime on Saturday night. 

McCabe assisted Benoit Pouliot 6:55 into the third period, and then delivered a precision pass from the point on Evander Kane’s game-tying goal with just over two minutes to play. 

It was the first two assists of the season for the fourth-year pro who played at Memorial in the 2009 high school season. McCabe also blocked a pair of shots on Saturday night.
