Don Granato opted for a large practice group Monday as the Sabers prepared for a busy week of preseason games, with four games scheduled over the next five days.

Those who participated in Sunday’s shootout victory over Washington were given the day off, leaving more than 30 players on the ice for competitive practice at KeyBank Center.

“I thought the workload was where we wanted it today, which was great,” Granato said.

The Sabers will play their first preseason game at home on Tuesday against the Boston Bruins, followed by a visit to West Lorne, Ont., for their Kraft Hockeyville game against Toronto on Wednesday and a trip to Pittsburgh on Thursday. The streak ends at home against Columbus on Saturday.

Buffalo still has 62 players on its camp roster after forward Ethan Miedema and goaltender Scott Ratzlaff were returned to their respective junior teams on Saturday. Granato said players will come in and out of the lineup over the coming week, and only a few names from Sunday’s game are expected to play against the Bruins on Tuesday.

“There are a few guys who will play both,” he said. “But it will alternate now because it’s three games in three nights.”

Here are more notes from Monday’s practice.
