"Obviously I'm not going to come back in two weeks but just that type of mindset helped me. It keeps you positive." He skated with the team Tuesday for the first time since suffering an MCL injury. Kane has been sidelined since Oct. 24 due to the ailment.

Coach Dan Bylsma will keep Evander Kane and Jack Eichel together for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

Kane has no goals and two assists in five games this season, while Eichel has two goals and no assists. "The opportunities have been there," Bylsma said Tuesday. "I think they'd like to create more. I think Evander would like to create more, but they have had some golden opportunities that had they gone in, we'd be in a different spot with how they've done together." Kane isn't worried about his sluggish start because it's still early, but he believes the floodgates will open eventually.

Evander Kane scored his first goal with the Sabres Thursday night, but the marker was called back after a coach's challenge.

Senators coach Dave Cameron wanted the play reviewed because Buffalo appeared to be offside when they entered the offensive zone. The referees ruled that the goal was no good. Kane, who earned an assist on Jack Eichel's first career goal, would've tied the game at 2-2, but the Sabres ended up losing to Ottawa by a score of 3-1 after the Senators added an empty netter.
