Sabres counting on late-season surge to carry into next year

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The airing of grievances and expressions of frustrations which commonly followed each of the Sabres' previous 10 losing seasons were notably absent on Saturday.

At a time Buffalo set an NHL record by missing the playoffs for an 11th straight year, the mood was unmistakably upbeat among players gathering one final time.

"It's definitely a different feeling this year," said forward Zemgus Girgensons, the team's longest-tenured player after completing his eighth season in Buffalo.
