BOSTON -- Sabres practice is complete in Boston University's Agganis Arena and here's how the roster shapes up today:
1). Thomas Vanek, Mike Grier and Jochen Hecht all skated in regular jerseys and coach Lindy Ruff confirmed they are good to go for tomorrow's game against the Bruins
2). All three Portland guys (Mark Parrish, Luke Adam and Mark Mancari) were sent back to the minors.
3). Jhonas Enroth remains here .... and Patrick Lalime is not. Post-practice update: Ruff said Lalime has a sore knee and that's why he didn't skate.
4). So the line shakeups result in this look for today: Pominville-Hecht-Vanek, Ennis-Boyes-Stafford, Gerbe-Connolly-McCormick and Niedermayer-Gaustad-Grier.
Here's post-practice audio from Ruff, Vanek and Hecht.
