EDMONTON -- I just met with Lindy Ruff upon his arrival at Rexall Place for tonight's Sabres-Oilers game and he will field the same six defensemen as he did last night in Calgary. That means Tyler Myers is again a scratch with the flu.
"He's not even here," Ruff said. "Still back in the hotel not feeling well."
Shaone Morrisonn will again be in the lineup with Chris Butler a scratch. Ruff liked Morrisonn's game last night in his return from a concussion.
"I thought he played well," Ruff said. "Played physical and didn't make any big mistakes."
The coach said he had only seen "one quick replay" of Zack Kassian's hit today in the Canada-Czech Republic game in HSBC Arena and had no comment on the play at this point.
Stay tuned later tonight for our Sabres-Oilers live blog, which opens at 9.
