Grier a game-time decision against Leafs

TORONTO -- Mike Grier, nursing a sore knee, took part in the Sabres' optional morning practice and is a game-time decision for tonight's game against Toronto in Air Canada Centre.

Grier skipped Monday's practice, a common occurrence lately as he struggles with the ailment, but he hasn't missed a game since March 8. The only healthy player definitely out for the Sabres tonight is defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani, who underwent assistant coach James Patrick's intense post-practice skate.

Coach Lindy Ruff said there is no further update on defenseman Jordan Leopold (hand) or forward Patrick Kaleta, who was scheduled to see a doctor Monday for a checkup on his knee.

The audio of Ruff's chat with the media -- featuring talk about the Maple Leafs, the Sabres' improved play and goaltender Ryan Miller -- is below.
