Sabres call up D Ristolainen, F Larrson to fill injury-depleted roster for game at Nashville

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have recalled defenceman Ramus Ristolainen and forward Johan Larsson from the minors to address an injury-depleted roster.

The moves were made Thursday before a game at Nashville that night, when the league-worst Sabres (20-44-8) close a five-game road trip.

Defenceman Tyler Myers was hurt in a 2-0 loss at Montreal on Tuesday, in his first game after missing five with an elbow injury. Forward Torrey Mitchell was also hurt at Montreal.

Ristolainen returns for a third stint in Buffalo this season. The rookie first-round draft pick has a goal in 24 games with the Sabres.

Larsson has also split time this season between Buffalo and AHL Rochester. He has an assist in 21 games with the Sabres.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
