As Ryan O'Reilly gets ready to play against his former team, the Colorado Avalanche, on Thursday, he reflected on how his role has changed since being dealt to Buffalo.

O'Reilly agreed to a seven-year, $52.5 million contract with Buffalo that began this season and feels that he's seen as more of a leader in Buffalo than he was with the Avalanche. "I think every year, you find new ways to grow your game," O'Reilly said. "I try to be more of a vocal guy, more of a leader. That was something coming here, I had to find how to do a bit more of. I think it’s really helped. I think there’s a little more creativity in my game offensively. Past years with Colorado tended to be a bit more on the defensive side, where here on the (power play) and stuff like that, I feel I can create more. It’s something I have to continue to work on, though." O'Reilly has 12 goals and 36 points in 47 contests this season. He's been hot lately with five points in his last five games.

We couldn't do it. We didn't have the collective everyone-together kind of thing. When things aren't going the right way, we tend to get a little selfish and you can see it breaks us down."
