Behind The Bench: Eichel making a case for MVP

On this week's edition of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Buffalo Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about Tuesday's loss in Toronto, which saw the team start slow before making the game interesting in the third period. Jack Eichel extended his point streak to 17 games and has entered the conversation for the NHL's most valuable player. Struggling youngster Casey Mittelstadt has been demoted to the AHL's Rochester Americans, where the organization hopes he will get his game back on track. And defenseman Zach Bogosian appears to want out of Buffalo, with a report that he has asked for a trade.

You can read Bill Hoppe's articles at his Buffalo Hockey Beat website and at BuffaloNews.com. Follow him on Twitter at @BillHoppeNHL.
