Alexei Ponikarovsky sat in his stall at HSBC Arena in Buffalo on Wednesday night and quietly removed his equipment.
A few of his Toronto Maple Leaf teammates could be heard letting out there frustrations nearby after a 7-4 loss to the Sabres, but Pony was preaching patience.
Heading into games Friday in Washington and back at home Saturday against Boston, the Leafs winger feels the team is on the right track.
"We just have to play the next game the same way," said Ponikarovsky. "We need to stay positive and play that same game in Washington."
Indeed, there was plenty to like about Toronto's game in Buffalo.
