It’s the fourth game of his young NHL Career, and Mikhail Grigorenko certainly has the attention of followers of the Sabres.
Everyone around the organization in any aspect has an interest in the 18-year old Russian center despite the fact that he has yet to record his first career point. His playing time has increased in each of his first three games, and he has started to look more comfortable with each shift.
In game four, Queen City Sports is following the 12th overall pick in this past June’s draft shift by shift, and will post updates between each period.
Follow along throughout the night, and leave your thoughts on the rookie in the comment section below.

The Buffalo Sabres have put up some mind-boggling merchandise numbers just one week into the 2013 season. According to the team's official site, the Sabres have sold more merchandise in the first week of the current season than they did during the entire 2010-11 season.
The team's "Fan Appreciation Sale", which ran over the course of training camp before ending...
Ever since Milan Lucic beat Ryan Miller out for a loose puck, the Buffalo Sabres and their fanbase have been crying out for more toughness, for more accountability. Apparently they realized that Patrick Kaleta is softer than a pool of Charmain Ultra. So what do they do? They hire that dude from the band Saliva and Brave Steve Ott. The idea was that those two would keep the...

How should Sabres fans react to Buffalo starting 2-0? Could they be better than advertised or should expectations remain mild this early in the season?

Thomas Vanek is the first player in Sabres history to record eight points in the first three games of the season.
Five players have had seven in the first three games: Gilbert Perreault (1972-72 and 1979-80), Don Luce (1975-76), Danny Gare (1979-80), Bob Sweeney (1992-93) and Pat LaFontaine (1992-93). (Source: Elias Sports Bureau).
Vanek recorded a career-best five points...

This week’s number actually has a couple meanings. First, it represents the total number of goals that the Sabres have scored in their first 4 games of the year. That gives them an average goal production of 2.75 goals per game. Yes, it’s early, but let’s see how that compares...
The good thing is Buffaloâs top line is scoring all the goals right now. The bad thing is Buffaloâs top line is scoring all the goals right now.
Call it a blessing, and, a curse.
Hodgson (3), Pominville (3) and Vanek (2) have scored 80% of the goals for the Sabres. The 26-19-29 trio has potted eight of the Sabres 10 goals in the first three games.
Were it not for...
After watching backup goaltender Jhonas Enroth fail to stop the previously winless Carolina Hurricanes, the Buffalo Sabres are hoping Ryan Miller has some better luck.
Miller will seek to continue his strong start when the Sabres wrap up their home-and-home series with the Hurricanes on Friday night in Buffalo.
Enroth was charged with five goals in his first start this season,...

With every team having to deal with a shortened training camp, there are bound to be a lot of roster and lineup changes throughout these first few weeks. Carolina's head coach, Kirk Muller made a few adjustments to the lineup before Tuesday nights game by subbing Jeremy Welsh and Kevin...
The Buffalo Sabres lost 6-3 to the Carolina Hurricanes. A pathetic defensive efford by all 12 forwards and 6 D. The discipline that the team showed in wins vs. Philly and Toronto was flushed down the drain.
Jhonas Enroth now 0-9-3 in his last 12 decisions. He gave up career high four goals in the second period.
Tyler Myers, Robyn Regehr and the Sabres D corps didn't...
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- With Ryan Miller standing tall at the other end, the Carolina Hurricanes regrouped late and focused on getting pucks to the net with traffic in front. It worked to perfection. Jay Harrison broke a 1-1 deadlock with just under 5 minutes remaining, and the Carolina Hurricanes went on to defeat the Buffalo Sabres 3-1 at the First Niagara Center on Friday night....

After two days, the Sabres return to action tonight with the first half of a home-and-home series against the Carolina Hurricanes. Hopefully the team made good use of their two day break between games because it’s their last such break for the next three weeks.
Buffalo enters tonight with a 2-0 record on the young season, —...
