It looks like Mike Weber and Paul Gaustad will return to the lineup.
Although Gragnani leads the team with a +11, his play of late has not been anything to congratulate him for. It will be interesting to see whether or not Lindy Ruff chooses to bench him for a game or two.
Meanwhile, the Sabres get back two big bodies in the lineup, and Weber is looking to make up for a...

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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
6 wins out of 18 home games this season?
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...
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.
Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino is expected to miss several weeks with a lower body injury, according to head coach Lindy Ruff.
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...
Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino is out indefinitely after sustaining what the team is calling a lower-body injury.
The Ottawa Senators managed to stun the Buffalo Sabres with a sudden victory overtime win 3-2 and the goal scorer Jared Cowen couldn’t look happier. The entire team was feeling it, but for one key absence: Milan Michalek. His first period goal made him the NHL’s lead goal scorer, but a collision with teammate Erik Karlsson in the second period effectively knocked him out of commission...

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...
