‘Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said Grigorenko played “steady” and “consistent.” “I probably used him as much as I wanted to,” Ruff said. “I think there’s going to be an opportunity to inject him in a few other places in the coming games. But (I) wanted to get him through that first game, and I thought it went well. … I thought defensively, sometimes in his own end we got hemmed in a little bit. But positionally, I thought he did a good job.”’
