Sabres' Miller absent, Tallinder injured; team calls up Hackett and Sulzer

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Ryan Miller did not practice Saturday morning and the Buffalo Sabres gave no reason for their starting goalie's absence.

The Sabres have called up goalie Matt Hackett from AHL Rochester.

Also, defenceman Alexander Sulzer has been recalled by the Sabres after Henrik Tallinder sustained an upper body injury Friday night against Ottawa.

Sulzer cleared waivers Monday after failing to make the team out of training camp and was sent to Rochester. The 6-foot-1 defenceman has 12 points in 32 games with the Sabres since being acquired at the 2012 NHL trade deadline.

The Sabres did not have an update on Tallinder's condition.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
