Ehrhoff will 'miss some time' with knee injury
The Buffalo Sabres announced Wednesday that defenseman Christian Ehrhoff will "miss some time" with a knee injury he suffered in Tuesday night's 5-1 win against the Washington Capitals.

Coach Lindy Ruff said the news was more encouraging than he had expected.

"He’ll miss some time," said Ruff, who declined to elaborate whether it was day-to-day or week-to-week, to reporters in Buffalo. "It’ll be a period of time.

"Christian has been logging a lot of minutes and been playing well for us, but every team has to deal with it. We have to deal with it. We have to face a little bit of adversity, and we need players to step up, and I thought last night we did. Some guys played some big minutes and played well for us."

The Sabres are 19-5-5 since Ehrhoff and fellow blueliner Robyn Regehr returned from injury Jan. 24.
Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
