 LOS ANGELES - Mikhail Grigorenkounderstands why he watched from the press box Thursday night as the Sabres played in Los Angeles. Buffalo was coming off a big win over San Jose, so coach Ron Rolston decided to keep the forward lines and defensive pairings intact against the Kings.

"I understand his decision to stick with the roster that won the game," Grigorenko said in Staples Center. "He's the coach and guys played well the last game, so I don't think you have to change anything.

"But I don't understand why I was scratched in the previous games."

Grigorenkohas been on the sidelines for three straight outings. The 19-year-old insists he learns more from playing than watching, and that was the case during his last appearance.

Grigorenko set a season high with three shots against the New York Rangerson Oct. 31. The center felt he fit in well with wingers Zemgus Girgensons and Brian Flynn, with the line combining for nine of the Sabres' 29 shots in a 2-0 loss. Grigorenko was also Buffalo's best faceoff man, winning seven of nine draws while playing 11:32.

"I thought it was one of my better games of the season," he said. "I was real disappointed when I didn't play.
"We did good on our line, so I was hoping I was going to get a chance to play against Anaheim or in San Jose, but obviously I didn't play. I'm just waiting for a chance."Rookie defenseman Nikita Zadorov is also biding his time on the sideline. He sat for the second straight game while the Sabres played the Kings at Staples Center. Buffalo lost, 2-0.
