NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils defenseman Henrik Tallinder was announced as a late scratch for Thursday's game against the Buffalo Sabres at Prudential Center.

The Devils said Tallinder has a lower-body injury. He will be replaced by Mark Fayne.

Fayne was listed as a healthy scratch following the team's morning skate at Prudential Center.

Fayne likely will begin the game paired with Andy Greene. Bryce Salvador will be with Marek Zidlicky and Anton Volchenkov will be with Peter Harrold, who will be making his second appearance of the season for the Devils.
