Sabres won't see Kovalchuk, might see Max

Big news out of Atlanta: Thrashers winger Ilya Kovalchuk, who injured his knee Wednesday against Pittsburgh, is out for the weekend after undergoing an MRI this afternoon. That means the NHL's second-leading goal scorer (38) won't be on the ice against the Sabres Friday night in Phillips Arena. The Sabres, meanwhile, might be getting Maxim Afinogenov back in the lineup just as Drew Stafford takes a seat with the ankle injury he suffered Thursday at Florida.
