'"Nathan is pretty banged up and may not be able to go," said Ruff. "He's got kind of whiplash from hitting the boards."'

'“Depending on his test this morning, I don’t have a timetable, but it’s going to be a good period of time,” Ruff continued. “When we get those results we will know better.”'
'“We pushed it as hard as we could,” Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said. “We went with three forwards, four forwards. We went after it as much as we could.”'
'Spacek has a chest injury and will require more tests to determine when he could return, but coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday, “It’s going to be a good period of time.” As for Kalinin, Ruff said the player will miss up to two weeks with a shoulder injury.'
'The recall is Weber’s third this season.'
'It would be fair to say it was a well-earned point considering the depleted defense. It also would be fair to say one point isn’t enough.'
'The Sabres will be reaching deep into their farm system over the final three-plus weeks in hopes of stringing together enough wins to steal the eighth spot. But let’s be honest. If they had reinforcements along the blue line worthy of playing in the NHL, they would have been in Buffalo months ago.'
'“It’s unfortunate all that happened but I thought we did a good job,” said Lydman, who played a season-high 29 minutes, 27 seconds. “The forwards did a good job supporting us. That was a big thing.”'
'Adding to the gloom, Kalinin and Spacek could be out for extended periods with their undisclosed injuries, meaning the Sabres likely will be calling Mike Weber up from Rochester, and maybe Mike Funk, too.'
‘Buffalo is now 2-9 this season in shoot-outs, and Miller has allowed 12 goals on 24 attempts.’
