Rolston wants more from Foligno

By John Vogl

Ron Rolston can’t wait for players to get moving. Marcus Foligno learned that Friday.

Rolston sat the Sabres' winger for most of the third period against Ottawa. During practice today, the coach took Foligno off the second power-play unit and replaced him with Brian Flynn.

“He just wasn’t moving his feet as much as he should be,” Rolston said. “Right now we have 12 forwards and six defensemen that are healthy, so we can’t afford guys that aren’t playing the way we have to play.

“He’ll bounce back and he’ll have a good game tomorrow, but everyone has to be playing their best hockey right now.”
