Before tonight’s game I was talking about how Hodgson had been invisible and how he needed to step up his game, boy did he do that tonight. Hodgson scored a goal- the Sabres first powerplay goal, added an assist and led the team with 6 shots tonight. Hodgson definitely improved his game tonight and is beginning to show why he’s worth the money he was given.

Hodgson was all over the ice tonight and had his best game this season. While he was a complete dud during the overtime, by standing still and screening Enroth, without Hodgson the Sabres don’t even get a point tonight. Hodgson now has 1 goal and 2 assists on the season and is beginning to generate chemistry with Thomas Vanek.

    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.
