The Sabres took the ice for practice this morning in preparation for tomorrow night's game in Boston without right wing Drew Stafford. He left their 2-1 overtime victory over Montreal with a groin injury that could keep him out againbst the Bruins.
Lindy Ruff was expected to offer more insight into how long Stafford, who has 15 goals in 30 games this season, would be sidelined. The Sabres could bring up Luke Adam from Portland in time for the game against Boston. He was sent to the AHL on Tuesday.
