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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
