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!
