Well actually, they got a whole lot more than a glimpse. Coach Ron Rolston made it so he saw a whole lot.
Included in Rolston's lineup Sunday were the Sabres' last four first-round draft picks: forwards Mikhail Grigorenko and Zemgus Girgensons, both selected at the 2012 NHL Draft, and 2013 draft picks Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov on defense.
Girgensons scored two goals, including a shorthanded beauty that tied the game early in the second period. Grigorenko scored the shootout winner and the two rookie defensemen each logged more than 21 minutes playing on both special teams units.
