Defenseman Bobby Dollas looked tentative and perhaps a step slow after a monthlong layoff because of a cut tendon in his left forearm. Dollas suffered the injury Oct. 28 against Toronto. "Baby steps," he said of his progress. "I didn't play 30 minutes, but that's probably good right now."
I'll play another 20 minutes [tonight at Buffalo] and we'll see how it goes from there."
"I definitely feel pretty good. I felt awful early in the game. Game shape and practice shape are two different things."
