Lineups for Maple Leafs, Sabres
Here is what the rosters likely will look like when the Sabres and Maple Leafs play tonight in snowy Buffalo. The Sabres skated today at First Niagara Center, and had Derek Roy back in the lineup after the center sat out the last two games with an upper-body injury.

The Maple Leafs opted to stay at their hotel rather than venture to the arena to skate.

MAPLE LEAFS

Joffrey Lupul - Tim Connolly - Phil Kessel
Joey Crabb - Mikhail Grabovski - Nikolai Kulemin
Clarke MacArthur - Matthew Lombardi - Nazem Kadri
Darryl Boyce - David Steckel - Mike Brown

Keith Aulie - Dion Phaneuf
Mike Komisarek - Cody Franson
Carl Gunnarsson - Luke Schenn

Jonas Gustavsson will be back in net for a fifth straight game, with James Reimer the backup.

SABRES
Thomas Vanek - Jochen Hecht - Jason Pominville
Nathan Gerbe - Derek Roy - Drew Stafford
Luke Adam - Ville Leino - Brad Boyes
Cody McCormick - Paul Gaustad - Patrick Kaleta

Brayden McNabb - Tyler Myers
Robyn Regehr - Jordan Leopold
Mike Weber - Marc-Andre Gragnani

Ryan Miller likely will start in net, with Jhonas Enroth the backup.

Matt Ellis likely will be a healthy scratch.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.

— Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello on goaltender Jonathan Bernier
