Sabres' lineup staying the same
According to the Buffalo News, the Buffalo Sabres will keep with the same lines they had Monday in Winnipeg for Wednesday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

It's the first home game for two of the newest Sabres, center Cody Hodgson and defenseman Alexander Sulzer, both of whom were acquired from the Vancouver Canucks at the trade deadline. Sulzer, however, likely won't play against the Hurricanes.

Here's how the Sabres' lineup could look when they hit the ice tonight:

Thomas Vanek - Derek Roy - Jason Pominville
Tyler Ennis - Cody Hodgson - Drew Stafford
Nathan Gerbe - Ville Leino - Patrick Kaleta
Matt Ellis - Brad Boyes - Corey Tropp

Christian Ehrhoff - Mike Weber
Jordan Leopold - Tyler Myers
Robyn Regehr - Andrej Sekera

Ryan Miller will start in goal, with Jhonas Enroth the backup. Monday's loss to Winnipeg was the Miller's first regulation loss in nine games. However, he's still 6-1-2 in his last nine games, with a pair of shutouts.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
