Lindy Ruff just told us Patrick Lalime woke up in the middle of the night with flu symptoms. Will he play tomorrow night?
Said Ruff: "That's a good question. Don't know."
Here's today's Buffalo News story on Lalime.
Asked if he felt his team was getting snakebit by its injury woes, Ruff said, "It falls under, "When it rains, it starts snowing harder even.' "
If Lalime can't go, rookie Jhonas Enroth would get his first NHL start. Lalime will travel with the team today but if he can't dress, the Sabres don't have another healthy goalie in their system to back up Enroth because Adam Dennis and John DeCaro are both injured at Portland.
Wow. Nightmare scenario.
