‘Kotalik’s name is added to a growing list of banged-up Sabres. Buffalo is now down six regulars after Maxim Afinogenov, the team’s second-leading scorer, broke his left hand and Jiri Novotny twisted his left ankle in a 2-1 overtime win over Edmonton on Thursday. Afinogenov is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks, while Novotny will be out indefinitely.’
