Three Sabres Hurt; Status For Saturday Uncertain


'Jochen Hecht, Henrik Tallinder and Derek Roy all missed Friday's practice with injuries sustained in Thursday night's 3-0 win over the New York Islanders on Long Island. Hecht took a puck to the mouth and didn't return to the line-up. Ruff said Hecht lost some skin, but didn't know specifics. Roy has what Ruff described as a lower body injury, while Tallinder has an upper body injury. Tallinder was hit high by Trent Hunter's stick, but it is not known when he sustained his injury.'
