Morrisonn the odd D-man out against Atlanta

Greetings from HSBC Arena, where the Sabres are in the midst of their pregame skate. Well, all the healthy Sabres except for Shaone Morrisonn. that is.

Morrisonn will be the defenseman scratched tonight for the game against Atlanta, his second benching in six games. Morrisonn has one goal, five points and an even rating in 55 games this season.

Coach Lindy Ruff said he'd like to keep all seven blue-liners fresh, and the scratch rotation saw Chris Butler benched last game and Steve Montador on the sidelines the game before that.

The goaltending matchup, as expected, is Ryan Miller versus Ondrej Pavelec.
