Sabres F Ville Leino suspended for 1 game

NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has suspended Buffalo Sabres forward Ville Leino one game without pay for elbowing Philadelphia Flyers forward Matt Read.

The incident occurred at 1:32 in the third period of the Flyers' 5-4 overtime victory on Wednesday night. No penalty was assessed on the play.

Leino will miss the Sabres' home game against Florida on Friday night. He will be eligible to return Saturday when Buffalo hosts the New York Rangers.

The NHL announced the discipline on Thursday. Leino will forfeit $24,324.32 in pay.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
