'Sabres spotlight on: D Dmitri Kalinin – Buffalo doesn't generate much offense from its defensemen, but Kalinin leads the bunch. A first-round pick in 1998, Kalinin has set career highs (entering Wednesday) with 21 assists and 28 points and is one goal short of his career best of eight set last year. Despite the career numbers and ranking sixth on the Sabres in points, Kalinin doesn't rank in the top 25 for points by a defenseman.'
