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

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
