Vanek to miss fourth straight game

Thomas Vanek told reporters he will miss his fourth straight game when his Buffalo Sabres play at the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.

Vanek skated with the team Tuesday morning but said he has not recovered fully from the upper-body injury that has sidelined him since March 26.

Vanek leads the Sabres with 16 goals and 33 points this season.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
