The Buffalo Sabres announced today that forward Jeff Skinner will miss the next three to four weeks with an upper-body injury.

Skinner was injured early in the third period of the team's 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins on Friday after colliding with Bruins forward David Pastrnak in front of the Sabres bench.

This season, he's fifth in team scoring with 11 goals and 19 points through 39 games. The Sabres are also without forwards Johan Larsson (lower body), Tage Thompson (upper body) and Vladimir Sobotka (knee) due to injury.

The Sabres will play the Bruins again Sunday night in Boston to wrap up the home-and-home set. Faceoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. with pregame coverage on MSG starting at 6:30.
