'Ruff had been leaning toward inserting LW Erik Rasmussen, the Sabres' most potent hitter, into the lineup tonight. But Rasmussen, who has missed the entire series because of a separated shoulder, had back spasms during the informal workout. "We sent him off the ice as a precaution to see the chiropractor," Ruff said. "Hopefully, we can get him back for the game."'
