Head coach Lindy Ruff gave a few injury updates during this morning's pre-game skate. He addressed the current status of Adam Mair
, Dmitri Kalinin
and Drew Stafford
Here are the finer points:Drew Stafford (shoulder) --
"Right now, we're just looking at day-to-day. So he could be available [Saturday at Montreal] or possibly Monday."
Adam Mair (ankle) --
"He's still progressing but is still not in full contact."
Dmitri Kalinin (knee) --
"He's kind of stuck at that point where he's ready to skate but his knee is still a little tender. He may need a couple days away from the off-ice stuff to get him over the hump.
"We feel he's almost right where he supposed to be at this stage of rehab."
Going into Friday night's match-up with Montreal the Sabres have 36 total man-games lost. See chart below for full details.
Man-games lost is calculated by adding each individual game a player missed together. So under that definition, one game will/can be counted multiple times if more than one player is absent due to injury. That's why the total (36) is greater than the actual number of games played (19).
