The Sabres have recalled forwards Derek Grant and Evan Rodrigues from the Rochester Americans (AHL).

Not good for Kane

Grant recalled to help the PK, since it was doing so well when he was here earlier in the season.

Be really interested to see how many scouts Anaheim has there tonight

We need Gus and Kane to play not only to win, but to showcase. If you're notes tonight, watch the Anaheim blue line at the very least

Believe me, ANA already knows Kane and Girgensons inside and out.   This game will do very little to tilt the scales.   (source: I have a friend inside the Ducks organization)

To be honest, I'll have the game on in its entirety, I just may not start watching closely until then... and I'll feel a little guilty about that.

 

Grant is back up? But next time we can send him down if he hasn't played X games or until 30 days have passed, right? I'd like to see him in the Amerks lineup to help push for the playoffs.

 

Sharpen your swords! Light up your sabers!

It's amazing that two forward injuries give Eichel garbage linemates and us two terrible lines on top of that. Thanks, Tim.

 

We're still gonna win.

I see him about once a week or so, we talk Ducks stuff occasionally, always has a few good stories to tell.... duffel bags full of cellphones for road trips, cocaine abuse, player/coach relationship issues... etc..  It's fascinating stuff.    There's a lot of dark and dirty stuff that goes on inside organizations.

This. It always makes me smile when I see: he's being showcased.
The Ducks know what Kane is. They have been scouting him since he was 17.

Shame about Kane and Gus. When did Derek Grant make his way back into this organization? I thought Nashville picked him up.

Let's go Sabres. Keep up the momentum at home.

Nashville waved him a few days ago.  The Sabres picked him back up and salted him away in Rochester.

So are those going to be the actual lines? It's amazing what that guy will do to keep Sam away from his natural position, even when he was playing the best hockey of his career and scoring at almost a PPG rate there a couple weeks ago. An AHL winger playing 3C to avoid it. That's insane. You know E-Rod is going to draw Kesler/Getzlaf every once in a while. Ugh.

I'm guessing those aren't the actual lines, but they're so jumbled that it's hard to know what DD is thinking.  There's a decent chance Kane plays, since he was working special teams in practice.  Bring him in, everyone gets shuffled around a bit.
