Sam Reinhart scores first NHL goal

He waited a little longer than he probably thought, but Sam Reinhart finally got that first NHL goal.

It took him 14 games, but Sam Reinhart finally got that long awaited goal.

In the Buffalo Sabres' 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, Reinhart won a puck battle along the half boards in the Lightning's defensive zone. Tyler Ennis picked up the puck and quickly snapped a shot at Tampa goaltender Ben Bishop. The puck re-directed behind the net, and Ennis fired it back towards Reinhart, who slapped it past Bishop.

Reinhart, drafted by the Sabres with the second-overall pick in the 2014 draft, has played in 14 games for Buffalo. He has one goal and two assists so far in his young career.
