‘Lydman’s return would leave the Sabres minus two regulars, right wing Maxim Afinogenov, who’s missed 18 games with a broken wrist, and center Tim Connolly, who’s not played this season while recuperating from post-concussion symptoms. Both players could be back in time for the first round of the playoffs, which start in two weeks.’
