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

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
