Michael Frolik was billed as an impact player on the penalty kill when he joined the Sabres earlier this month. It’s only fitting that his first goal with the team came shorthanded.
Frolik found the back of an empty net with 2:16 remaining, capping a 4-for-4 night on the penalty kill and providing a needed cushion for the Sabres in what ended as a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Thursday.
Jimmy Vesey, Rasmus Dahlin, and Zemgus Girgensons also scored goals for the Sabres. Jack Eichel tallied an assist to extend his point streak to nine games, while Linus Ullmark made 28 saves.
Jamie Benn scored the only goal for the Stars. Ben Bishop stopped 18 shots.
