Morning skate report

As it turns out, you can't read much into the roll call from the Sabres' morning skate because it's an optional. Not on the ice are Tim Connolly, Derek Roy, Paul Gaustad and Craig Rivet.

Three names also floated in trade talk -- Maxim Afinogenov, Ales Kotalik and Henrik Tallinder -- are all skating.

Lots of media on hand whenver Montreal is in town but that's even more the case today. Crews from TSN and The Score are in the building beaming live reports on the trade deadline back to Canada.

Speaking of the Canadiens, Carey Price is going to make his first start in goal since Feb. 19 tonight because Jaroslav Halak stayed home with the flu.
