Bulletin: Vanek not on the ice

PITTSBURGH -- Thomas Vanek must be the unknown Sabre with the flu who is questionable for tonight. He is not on the ice for the morning skate in Consol Energy Center.

The Sabres are going with three goalies as Jhonas Enroth has remained with the team. Mark Parrish and Luke Adam have both reported from Portland and are on the ice. Jochen Hecht and Mike Grier are skating in red (non-contact) jerseys so they will definitely be scratches.

The line combinations appear pretty jumbled and hard to peg (disclosure: I missed an early drill hoping to hear Pens coach Dan Bylsma but he took forever so I bailed on him). The power play combos are Stafford-Connolly-Pominville with Leopold and Sekera at the points, and Ennis-Gerbe-Boyes with Mancari and Myers at the points.

More after the skate.
