Sabres' Leino out 'weeks'
The Buffalo Sabres already are banged up and they got even more bad news today, as coach Lindy Ruff said center Ville Leino will miss "weeks" with a lower-body injury suffered in Tuesday's game against Ottawa.

Leino played 14:49 against the Senators, but just one shift, totaling 56 seconds, in the final 9:25 of the game.

Matt Ellis skated in Leino's place today at practice.

The Sabres already are missing forwards Brad Boyes, Nathan Gerbe, Jochen Hecht, Patrick Kaleta and Corey Tropp.

The only good news is defenseman Tyler Myers, who hasn't played since Nov. 19 due to a broken wrist, told reporters he hopes to return sometime around the holiday break.
Quote of the Day

I think that’s the sign of a good team. When you don’t play well, and you don’t stay focused and you don’t do the intangibles that it takes, you still win the hockey game.
