'"You lose your stature, you lose your touch, you lose your place on the team. Other guys had to step up and fill the role that maybe you once filled. You come back in and all of a sudden you feel awkward because you haven't been the guy that's been there."'

'Tonight will be the Sabres' fourth game in a five-game, seven-night stretch.'
