Sabres’ Brennan focusing on defense


‘"He has to become like a lot of kids going from juniors to the professional game. He thinks offense, but you have to be capable defensively. Hopefully, his skating agility and his defensive awareness will improve. He needs to work on his pivoting, his turning to skate backwards, his first couple of steps. Anyone can skate a straight line. Today’s game is about wiggling around, making tight turns, skating in a phone booth. You have to be able to maneuver, get a little space and throw a puck on net."’
