The Sabres return to action Tuesday night when they host the Senators in the first of back-to-back matchups.
The players are seeing signs of improvement in their game but not yet in the results. A more complete effort in Montreal still amounted to a third straight loss. One of the bright spots, the play of young Zemgus Girgensons. He tallied a pretty goal in the third period, the rookie's first since the season opener.
"Probably the best confidence booster for all of us would be a win, but definitely nice to get a goal," Girgensons said. "The whole team is struggling with them so definitely nice to get one."
"One thing you can't teach him is the ability to work," coach Ted Nolan said. "He competes on a daily basis and it's great to see him get rewarded for his work lately."
