With Friday’s shootout loss already in the rearview mirror, the Buffalo Sabres practiced at First Niagara Center today in preparation for Sunday afternoon’s 12:30 p.m. (NBC) tilt with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The only player not on the ice was Cody McCormick
, who remains sidelined with an upper body injury suffered February 10 against Dallas. Lindy Ruff once again watched from the bench, with his assistants handling all the on-ice instructions.
