BUFFALO, N.Y. - Mikhail Grigorenko had a goal and an assist and Jhonas Enroth made 26 saves to lead the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-0 win Wednesday over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ville Leino opened the scoring with a goal at 4:58 of the second period when he beat Columbus goaltender Mike McKenna.

Buffalo made it 2-0 at 9:10 of the third when Grigorenko beat Columbus goalie Jeremy Smith over the right shoulder.

Grigorenko assisted on Zemgus Girgensons' empty-net goal in the final minute.

Sabres defenceman Mike Weber had assists on all three goals.

Columbus played without several stars. Marian Gaborik, Nathan Horton and Sergei Bobrovsky were among the players who did not make the trip to Buffalo.
