Sadly this has been the case for too many games. Tankenstein....It's alive!...It's alive!

@BuffaloSabres
Ruhwedel will play tonight. Ott, Ehrhoff and Ennis should be ready to go tonight according to Nolan. -CR

@BuffaloSabres
Omark, Scott and Sulzer are the expected scratches tonight. #sabres -CR

@BuffaloSabres
Nearly full attendance at the morning skate. No Ott. No Ehrhoff. Ruhwedel is skating with the team. Miller is expected to start in goal. -CR

Must lose. Edmonton's still only three points ahead and we now have three games in hand. Calgary's helped us out by winning their last two.

The moneyline (+185, -204) is pretty tilted in our favor,so if there's anything to that, we should be just fine.

How can it be possible that Leino keeps getting more and more invisible on the ice? He must know that the spotlight is on him, does he have no pride at all? Looking forward to watching Ruhwedel again, he had some smoothness to his game last year! Go Sabres!!!

@BuffaloSabres
#Sabres forwards:Moulson-Ennis-Stafford. Ott-Hodgson-Girgensons. Foligno-Varone-Flynn. Ellis-Konopka-Leino.

@BuffaloSabres
#Sabres D: Ehrhoff-Ruhwedel Tallinder-Myers Weber-McBain Miller in goal.

@smitchcd
#CBJ D Cody Goloubef will not make it to Columbus in time to play. Savard is out. #CBJ will play with five D-men.

@smitchcd
#CBJ F Cody Bass taking warm-up rushes as a defenseman. Paired with Nikitin. Rest of lineup is the usual.

@ToddSharrock
Previous tweet should have said D Cody Goloubef will not arrive for tonight's game. Cody Bass expected to be in the lineup as extra forward.

At least Hodgson and Moulson are on different lines; spreads the turn overs out a little.

First time this season another team pulls its goalie and replaces him against the Sabres during regulation play?

Myers comes up big to break up that 2 on 1. Nice to see.

Agreed on Ruhwedel.
