Bailey excited that Sabres remain unbeaten

Two games in the books here in Traverse City and two victories.

On Friday, we beat the New York Rangers in overtime. I think we played well; we were up pretty much the whole game actually so I think we just need to find a way to hold on to the lead in the future, but we all played well [in a 6-5 victory].

I thought [Nick] Baptiste played a very good game [scoring two goals]. He's a good, fast player and he's executing his chances.

On Thursday night, we went across the street from our hotel for a team dinner and I ended up ordering a chicken parm dinner, much like everyone else. We have a practice on Saturday morning but then I think we're doing some rope climbing, so it'll be nice to regroup and take the rest of the day and get ready for Sunday's game [against the Carolina Hurricanes].

I'll file another blog following Monday's game.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
