The Buffalo Sabres are off to a rough start.

They're in last place in the Atlantic Division with a 1-7-1 record, they've allowed 24 goals and scored only 11 and they're winless in five home games.

But rather than get angry and point fingers, they've opted to point their toes. After Friday morning's practice, the Sabres engaged in a dance-off at center ice in First Niagara Center.

"Just trying to get some energy going, have some fun," said head coach Ron Rolston after practice.

The Sabres will tango with the Avalanche Saturday night.
