Unfortunately for Stafford, the Sabres have lost in each of those five games, with the forward taking a collective minus-2 during that span.

Stafford's been off to a cold start this year, and even this two-point night can't add that much luster to his stats. He's now got a goal, five assists and 23 PIM to go with a minus-8 rating in 11 games on the year.

Stafford was held without a point, and collected 17 penalty minutes, in a loss to the Kings on Thursday.

Stafford took exception to a big hit to teammate Torrey Mitchell, getting an instigator, fighting, and misconduct penalty for dropping his gloves. Stafford's struggled though on the whole, collecting just three points, with none in his past five games. He figures to break out of it at some point, but on offensively challenged Buffalo, his offensive production will likely be limited.

Stafford collected his first two points of the season in Saturday's loss to the Blackhawks.

Lining up on the top line alongside Tyler Ennis and Matt Moulson, Stafford will get plenty of opportunities to put up offensive numbers in 2014-15. He picked up a shorthanded assist and an even-strength assist in Saturday's loss. After posting consecutive 50-point seasons in 2010-2011 and 2011-12, Stafford saw his production drop in the following two years. He did score 16 goals last season though, and with top line and top power-play minutes this season, Stafford could return to the 50-point barrier.

Drew Stafford has one year remaining on his contract, but there's speculation that he'll probably stay in Buffalo.

He was much better in the final part of the season, where he recorded 12 goals and 21 points in his last 32 games. Stafford also regained the alternate captaincy he lost earlier in the year and should serve as a leader in 2014-15. Buffalo needs forwards who can score and although Stafford is streaky, he is capable of producing. He is also playing for a new contract, which could motivate him further. Stafford's name has surfaced in trade rumors before, but it wouldn't be surprising if he stuck around.
