The third star for tonight’s Sabres game goes to Marcus Foligno, who in his first game back provided the spark the Sabres seemed to be missing. Right from his first shift tonight, it was clear Foligno was ready to go after missing the first three games of the season. He threw a big hit and dropped the mitts on his first shift alone and finished the night with 7 hits.

Aside from the physical side, Foligno also generated numerous scoring chances and was buzzing around all night long. The Sabres were missing something the first three games, Foligno comes back and they look like a solid team. Coincidence I think not!

    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.
