Sabres' Leino scratched with upper-body injury

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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
