Now, he is showcasing his skills against Buffalo for much higher stakes.Thomas had a goal and an assist and Jake Allen made 30 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-1 victory over the Sabres on Thursday night.“It kind of feels like it’s been a whole whirlwind and now I ended up here,” Thomas said.“It’s just a dream come true.”Jay Bouwmeester, Pat Maroon and Ryan O’Reilly scored for the Blues.Jack Eichel scored his 15th goal of the season in the second period for the Sabres.Thomas scored his third goal of the season by swatting the rebound of a shot by Vince Dunn underneath Carter Hutton, who inadvertently knocked it into his net with his elbow.“I know I kind of whacked it underneath him Authentic Oscar Fantenberg Jersey ,” Thomas said. “I just heard the ref yell goal and I kind of put my hands up.”Hutton stopped 28 of 32 shots in his first appearance against St. Louis after spending the previous two seasons with the Blues. He lost his third consecutive start and fell to 13-11-2 on the season and 0-3-3 against his former teammates.“Obviously, I think I have to be better,” Hutton said.“It’s one of those things. I think I’m real close and playing well, but four is just unacceptable.”Allen improved to 13-10-4. He has won five of his last seven starts and improved to 6-1-0 against Buffalo.“He’s giving us a chance to win every night,” Blues interim coach Craig Berube said about his starting goaltender. “He’s aggressive.

It feels really good to win that one.”Eichel scored on the power play 17:25 into the second period. The goal was Eichel’s 10th in 10 games and the first of his career against the Blues. Montreal and Florida are the only two teams Eichel has not scored against.Buffalo traveled to St. Louis the morning of the game because of the NHL’s holiday break from Dec. 24-26.“Obviously, it’s not an easy day for us in terms of traveling, getting here, and the schedule,” Eichel said. “But I think that as a group we probably should’ve been a little more mature about the situation and just given ourselves a better chance to win.”NOTES: St. Louis LW Robby Fabbri missed his 10th consecutive game with an upper body injury.
