The Sabres are on the ice in HSBC Arena, getting their final workout in before traveling to Philadelphia for Game One on Thursday. All the players are present. The lines:
Thomas Vanek-Tim Connolly, Jason Pominville
Tyler Ennis-Brad Boyes-Drew Stafford
Nathan Gerbe-Paul Gaustad-Patrick Kaleta/Mark Mancari
Rob Niedermayer-Matt Ellis-Mike Grier/Cody McCormick
The Sabres practiced the power play for a while with the following units: Stafford-Vanek-Connolly, with Marc-Andre Gragnani and Pominville on the points; and Boyes-Gaustad-Ennis, with Chris Butler and Tyler Myers on the blue line.
The Flyers boast one of the league's most-potent group of forwards, so the Sabres are getting their defensemen ready right now. The Sabres are running a two-on-one drill, with the D-men left on an island.
More following practice.
