Sabres' Vanek to sit out fifth straight game

The Buffalo Sabres announced that forward Thomas Vanek will not play Friday against the Ottawa Senators due to an upper-body injury.

It will be the fifth straight game Vanek will miss.

Vanek leads the Sabres in goals (16), assists (17), points (33) and power-play goals (seven).

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
