Tallinder late scratch for Devils against Sabres

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils defenseman Henrik Tallinder was announced as a late scratch for Thursday's game against the Buffalo Sabres at Prudential Center.

The Devils said Tallinder has a lower-body injury. He will be replaced by Mark Fayne.

Fayne was listed as a healthy scratch following the team's morning skate at Prudential Center.

Fayne likely will begin the game paired with Andy Greene. Bryce Salvador will be with Marek Zidlicky and Anton Volchenkov will be with Peter Harrold, who will be making his second appearance of the season for the Devils.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
