Tyler Ennis' first goal of the 2013 campaign on Sunday night marked the first time that a Buffalo player scored, who wasn't named Thomas Vanek, Cody Hodgson or Jason Pominville since the team's opener.

Vanek was missing in action due to muscle strain and Ennis tried to pick up the slack with his best of the young season. He scored once on four shots, while posting a plus-2 rating over 18:40 of ice time. When the Sabres' top line struggled in the second half of the 2011-12 campaign it was Ennis' line, alongside Drew Stafford and Marcus Foligno, that emerged as the go-to scoring threat as well. Still, it would be better for the team and fantasy owners if both units clicked simultaneously.
