BUFFALO -- Ville Leino is day-to-day for the Buffalo Sabres with an upper-body injury and will not play against the Boston Bruins at First Niagara Center on Sunday.

Leino did not partake in the pregame skate and the Sabres confirmed after warmups that he is dealing with an injury that will keep him out of the game.

After a team meeting Sunday morning, Sabres interim coach Ron Rolston noted that enforcer John Scott would be back in the lineup, but would not confirm the team's scratch. Leading scorer Thomas Vanek is also out with an upper-body injury.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
