Optional morning skate for the Sabres

BOSTON -- The Sabres are without coach Lindy Ruff and a significant portion of their roster as they partake in an optional morning skate in TD Garden. Assistant coach James Patrick, associate coach Brian McCutcheon and goalie coach Jim Corsi are running the drills for the following players:

Forwards -- Nathan Gerbe, Cody McCormick, Patrick Kaleta, Marc-Andre Gragnani, Paul Gaustad, Mike Grier, Tyler Ennis, Jason Pominville, Drew Stafford (in noncontact jersey). Defense -- Shaone Morrisonn, Tyler Myers, Mike Weber, Craig Rivet, Chris Butler. Goalies -- Ryan Miller, Patrick Lalime.

It appears Gragnani will be playing forward tonight against the Bruins despite not having played the position all season with Portland. He has been at his usual defense spot while blue-liner T.J. Brennan has been playing forward for the short-handed Pirates.

More from Gragnani following the skate.
