I have to say it sure seems like Jhonas Enroth has taken the next step in his development and may be ready to become a starter for the Sabres. Ever since Ron Rolston came to town, Enroth became a different netminder and he’s finally starting to flourish. Tonight he stood tall all night and made many key saves. I thought the first goal he let in was a little weak, but he rebounded nicely and backstopped the Sabres to their first lead of the season and eventually their first point.

Enroth can’t be blamed for the OT winning goal as both Cody Hodgson and Tyler Myers stood right in front of him and provided the perfect screen. Enroth finished with 31 saves on the night and may have earned himself another start on Thursday.

    1. Enroth – He’s ready for the #1 job.
    2. Hodgson – Great game
    3. McBain – Was great on the PP and ok when it was 5 on 5
    Honorable mention – Vanek – got a couple points not bad. Foligno – nice debut.

    Grigorenko has played pretty well through the first 3 games. Tonight’s game where he got put on the 4th line is a huge reason why he wasn’t playing that well. You know how much a demotion like that could effect the play of player as young as Grigorenko? A line of Flynn Grigorenko and Girgensons will produce here and there but won’t produce like you want it to. Grigorenko needs to be put with top notch players Girgensons is still learning and Flynn is honestly average on his best nights. I wouldn’t mind seeing Hodgson and Grigorenko switch spots. That top line has honestly done nothing either. Hodgson and Vanek have really only looked good on the PP and that was only for tonight’s game.
