Ruff's goal is still a Cup in Buffalo

Lindy Ruff isn't in the mood to chat about declining a contract extension with the Sabres, but the coach did say today his ultimate goal remains the same.

"The only light I'd like to shed is I want to win a Stanley Cup here in Buffalo," Ruff said in HSBC Arena. "That should conquer all other comments."

The coach ran practice today with a full lineup, though right wing Patrick Kaleta was limited by his broken left hand. Ruff said Kaleta will not play Friday against Pittsburgh because he cannot handle the puck. Center Paul Byron was recalled from Portland after recording points in his first two games. Tim Connolly is expected back in the lineup against the Penguins after missing the past two games with a hip flexor.

For Ruff's comments on Kaleta, Byron, the Sabres' recent scoring surge, their upcoming ownership change and his Cup goal, listen to the audio below.
