Sabres rookie Enroth rebounds against Senators

BUFFALO — Prior to his first start in three weeks, struggling Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth, normally a cool customer, acknowledged he felt a little bit nervous.

“But I just told myself to relax and go out there and compete,” the rookie backup said Saturday after making a career-high 44 saves in the Sabres’ 3-2 shootout loss to Ottawa at the First Niagara Center. “Usually when I do that it’s working out well for me.”

He added: “A lot of them were really good saves, so obviously I felt good out there.”

The Swede had some help, though – the Senators hit four goalposts during the first period and six overall!

“I don’t think that’s a big deal,” Enroth said about the posts. “They didn’t hit the net on the shot, so it’s whatever for me.”

But those would’ve been goals, right, Jhonas?

“I don’t think they beat me clearly that much, actually,” he said.

Enroth, who’s lost eight of his last nine appearances, clearly regained some confidence Saturday.

“I’m still feeling pretty good about myself,” he said. “I know what I can do.”
