Sabres' Leino scratched with upper-body injury
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.

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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
