It would seem so, unless Girgensons played through an injury (which I don't think was the case). His play also peaked at a fortunate time, as he was arguably Rochester's best player in their series, and below are his goals from those losses.

Game 1 goals at 1:45 and 3:00; missed chance at 3:30:

Game 3 goal at 0:50:

It's good to see him so confident and productive in the playoffs though, even if it wasn't enough to get the Amerks further (certainly not his fault). Hopefully he picks up right where he left off at the Worlds.
He may not have looked out of place early, but he was never among Rochester's best players on the ice when NHLers were around. He'd flash his compete and physicality, but the confidence in puck possession was noticeably lacking, especially with errant passes, and his inexperience in protecting himself after giving/taking hits left him having to pick himself off the ice frequently. Then his concussion stalled any momentum he had built up, but since then he's been a solid contributor (PP and PK time) and even seen time at center, instead of the previous weaning at left wing. Lately, he had found chemistry with Buffalo's deadline acquisition Johan Larsson and formed a very hard-working pair.
