With another day to practice ahead of their game in Detroit on Thursday, the Buffalo Sabres stayed off the ice on Tuesday morning, opting instead to report to KeyBank Center for a stretch and a team meeting.
The one Sabre who did take the ice was goalie Robin Lehner, back after taking the day off on Monday to nurse a hip injury. Lehner said he expects to be a full participant in practice on Wednesday and should be ready to return in Detroit.
"I pulled my one hip earlier in the season," Lehner said. "It's been a little bit back and forth. I pulled it against Colorado and just kept going through it. Eventually I just needed to fix it."
