TORONTO -- One day after being the Philadelphia Flyers 5-2 in their season opener Sunday, the Buffalo Sabres are right back at it Monday here at Air Canada Centre.

Coach Lindy Ruff is expected to go with the same lineup he iced at First Niagara Center against Philadelphia.

Ville Leino took part in the morning skate but will remain out of the lineup with a ¬lower-body injury.

"We'll just take it day by day," Ruff said. "He tried again today and didn't feel well enough to play."

Ryan Miller is projected to get the start in goal.

Here is the lineup the Sabres likely will use Monday night:

Thomas Vanek - Cody Hodgson - Jason Pominville

Marcus Foligno - Tyler Ennis - Drew Stafford

Steve Ott - Mikhail Grigorenko - Jochen Hecht

John Scott - Matt Ellis - Patrick Kaleta

Robyn Regehr - Tyler Myers

Christian Ehrhoff - Alexander Sulzer

Jordan Leopold - Andrej Sekera

Ryan Miller

Jhonas Enroth

Injured: Ville Leino

Scratched: Mike Weber, T.J. Brennan

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
