Enroth celebrates first shutout

Jhonas Enroth, with his parents, Erik and Eva, over from Sweden to see him play in the NHL for the first time, stopped all 23 shots he faced to give the Sabres a 1-0 win over the Rangers. A few tidbits:

*Enroth became the first Buffalo goalie not named Ryan Miller to earn a shutout since Jocelyn Thibault on April 5, 2008.

*Enroth backstopped the first 1-0 win since the Sabres beat Toronto on Feb. 13, 2008.

*It was the third time the Sabres posted consecutive home shutouts with two different goalies. Bob Sauve and Don Edwards did it Feb. 3-7, 1980, while Grant Fuhr and Dominik Hasek accomplished it April 1-4, 1994. Miller blanked New Jersey, 2-0, Saturday.

The audio of Enroth's postgame chat is below.
