Drew Stafford has struggled finding his scoring touch this season. © Dan Hickling A bit of surprising news coming out of Montreal this afternoon after the morning skate as Sabres Alternate Captain Drew Stafford will find himself in the press box as a healthy scratch when Buffalo battles the Canadians tonight at the Bell Center. He joins John Scott and Andrej Sekera as the team’s scratches with Thomas Vanek and Nathan Gerbe set to return to the lineup tonight when Buffalo goes for it’s third straight win. Stafford scored the shootout goal that kept Buffalo alive Thursday night against Toronto, a game Buffalo ended up the victor. It’s a sign of how much the former 30-goal scorer as fallen. The Milwaukee native has just four goals this season, and has found himself on the fourth line multiple times since Ron Rolston took over as the team’s interim head coach. Could this signal that the end is near for the 27-year old winger in Buffalo? Will something happen later today, tomorrow? Who knows. What is known is that Stafford cannot be pleased with being a healthy scratch for the first time this year. Leave a comment below with your thoughts on the situation, and check back later as we have move on the Sabres.
