PHILADELPHIA -- Patrick Kaleta and Mike Grier are both absent from the Sabres' morning skate and they would both appear to be out for Game Seven. Derek Roy, Mark Mancari and Jochen Hecht are among 12 forwards skating.
Andrej Sekera is also on the ice, meaning seven defensemen are taking the morning skate. My bad: Jordan Leopold did not take the skate either. His status remains uncertain.
The lines look like this
Without Jason Pominville and Tim Connolly, the power play units are thin. At least right now, Tyler Myers has taken turns playing on both units.
The top unit was Stafford-Ennis-Vanek-Gragnani-Myers. The second unit was Gerbe-Roy-Boyes-Butler-Myers, with Mancari stepping in for Myers some.
