Buffalo's Kane benched for missing practice

Sabres forward broke team rule; to miss Ottawa game @NHLdotcom

Buffalo Sabres left wing Evander Kane won't play against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday because he missed practice Monday, coach Dan Bylsma said.
"He slept in, called [general manager] Tim {Murray] and myself, broke a team rule," said Bylsma. "We'll be dealing with it internally, but he will not be playing in Ottawa. I'm disappointed." 

Kane, 24, has 16 goals and eight assists in 47 games this season. He has three goals in the past two games, including one Sunday in a win against the Colorado Avalanche, and four goals in the past four.
