Sabres' Moulson likely out through Olympic break

Buffalo Sabres forward Matt Moulson likely will be out through the Olympic break due to an upper-body injury.

Moulson left the Sabres' game Thursday against the Phoenix Coyotes with 6:05 left in the third period after he was hit by the Coyotes' Shane Doan.

Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan said he wasn't sure if Moulson's injury came from a slash on the wrist or a cross-check.

Moulson has nine goals and 15 assists in 40 games with the Sabres, who acquired him from the New York Islanders on Oct. 27 as part of a trade for Thomas Vanek.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
