Found December 13, 2011 on HockeyBuzz:
All seven healthy Sabres D skated this morning. They all left the ice together. Mike Weber will play. Brayden McNabb will play. Marc Andre Gragnani appears to be the odd man out. Lindy Ruff told Howard Simon this morning that it matters not the age of a player. He's handed out playing time based on one criteria: Does the player have the ability to help the team win games?

Sabres F Leino out with lower body injury

Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino is out indefinitely after sustaining what the team is calling a lower body injury. Coach Lindy Ruff says Leino will be out ''for weeks'' after the player was absent from practice on Wednesday, a day after being hurt in a 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa. It's the latest blow to an injury-riddled team that hasn't had a healthy...

Did last year screw up this year for the Sabres?

In the beginning part of February, Heather B. and I decided to do a Sabres podcast together. Alright, it was mostly me begging her to talk to me, but she finally gave in. Anyway, the day we did our first podcast came right after Tom Golisano announced he was selling the team. At the time, the Sabres were still on the outside looking into the playoffs and yes, they made some moves...

GARTH: Gragnani In / Ellis Out

Marc Andre Gragnani has been granted the 11th hour reprieve from the Governor. Lindy skated 7 D in the warm-ups. Gragnani will play a hybrid wing/D assignment tonight. Matt Ellis is your scratch. Jochen Hecht and Corey Tropp are also out. ****

Lost For Answers, Sabres Lose Again

Buffalo, NY - When will this team play a full sixty minutes? In a game in which Buffalo once again had countless chances to pull away, they once again managed to blow a late lead and lose at home, falling 3-2 to the Ottawa Senators in overtime. Jared Cowen pinched in from the blue line and was left wide open in front of the Buffalo net and was able to just squeak the puck past Ryan...

Colin Greening Hits Sabres Goalie Ryan Miller, Fight Breaks Out (Video)

Last night the Ottawa Senators beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2.  Senator player Colin Greening was going for the puck when Sabres goalie Ryan Miller got in the way which ended in Miller getting checked into the net.  His teammate Christian Ehrhoff didn't like that to much and immediately started throwing haymakers at Greening.  Nobody seemed to land and good bombs, but it looked...

Sabres F Leino injured, out 'for weeks' (AP)

Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino is out indefinitely after sustaining what the team is calling a lower body injury. Coach Lindy Ruff says Leino will be out "for weeks" after the player was absent from practice on Wednesday, a day after being hurt in a 3-2 overtime loss to Ottawa. It's the latest blow to an injury-riddled team that hasn't had a healthy lineup all season.

GARTH: D Corps Door Is Open

I don't profess to know what thoughts are occupying Lindy Ruff's head, however, I'm convinced that the coach has a blue line shakeup in mind. Lindy has a big decision to make this morning. He has seven healthy D: Regehr, Ehrhoff, Leopold, McNabb, Sekera, Gragnani, and Weber. Only six D can play tonight. Someone has to sit. That, or, Ruff can send McNasty back to Rochester...

Sabres' Leino to miss several weeks

Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino is expected to miss several weeks with a lower body injury, according to head coach Lindy Ruff.

GARTH: Sabres Spoil Miller Gem

6 wins out of 18 home games this season? Totally unacceptable. Ryan Miller was brilliant in the OT loss to Ottawa. Miller made a season-best 41 saves, who dropped to 2-5-3 in their last 10 home games. Don't look now, but here come the Toronto Maple Leafs and their obnoxious fans. Paul Szczechura and Tyler Ennis scored for Buffalo. Milan Michalek and Peter...

Senators-Sabres Preview

The Buffalo Sabres might be getting healthier just in time for what they've deemed an important set of games. They'll try to begin that stretch by continuing their recent dominance of the visiting Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. Plagued by injuries for much of this season, Buffalo (15-12-2) had four players scratched and another four on injured reserve during a 4-1 home...

Travis Yost: Gameday: Ottawa and Buffalo Renew Rivalry at First Niagara Center

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter and Facebook! -- To say that the Ottawa Senators(3-4-3) and the Buffalo Sabres(3-5-2) have struggled in their last ten games is a bit of an understatement, but at least one of the two Northeast division rivals will be able to right the ship after a Tuesday night affair at First Niagara Center. The two teams have met twice this season, with...
