Sabres defenseman Shaone Morrisonn, who suffered a groin injury Wednesday late in the the 1-0 overtime loss to New Jersey, skipped practice today and will miss Friday's home game against Montreal and Saturday's road game in Chicago.
"He’s just got a groin injury, and he’ll miss tomorrow," coach Lindy Ruff said today. "I would assume if he misses tomorrow, he won’t be ready for Saturday. It’s going to be a little bit of time."
Either Chris Butler or Mike Weber will replace Morrisonn in the lineup. Ruff refused to say which blue-liner would move in, but early signs point to Butler.
