Moulson caps long day by scoring 2 in Sabres debut after being acquired from Islanders

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The setting might be new for forward Matt Moulson, now that he's a member of the Buffalo Sabres. The uncertainty about his future beyond this season hasn't changed.

A day after being acquired in a trade with the New York Islanders, Moulson arrived in Buffalo on Monday unsure of whether this would be his last stop this season. In the final year of his contract, Moulson is aware the rebuilding Sabres could eventually deem him more valuable as trade bait.

Whatever happens, the three-time, 30-goal scorer says he's focused on helping the Sabres win.

Moulson was set to make his debut on Buffalo's top line Monday night when the Sabres (2-10-1) host Dallas (4-5-1).

Buffalo acquired Moulson and two draft picks in trading Thomas Vanek to the Islanders.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
