Sabres' Girgensons Finishes Strong: Zemgus Girgensons scored three goals in three playoff games as Rochester of the AHL was eliminated from the postseason. Said Rochester coach Chadd Cassidy to The Buffalo News: "He's really come a long way this year. More than anything from what I've seen is just his confidence with the puck has been through the roof. He always plays hard, always plays through people. He's tough to play against, but you can see that confidence when he has the puck." (Updated 5/1/13)

Zemgus Girgensons battled through a concussion earlier in the season, but the first-rounder did pretty well in his first professional campaign, finishing the regular season with six goals and 17 points. The Sabres look like they're heading into a major youth movement, so Girgensons may be coming on strong enough that he'll have a decent shot at a roster spot with the big boys next season.
