One crazy looking morning lineup

OTTAWA -- You want crazy mixed-up Sabres lines from the morning skate? We got 'em. (No guarantees this is what suits up tonight, of course, given Lindy Ruff's habitual shuffling).

Vanek-Roy-Pominville (an old standby back together again)

For those scoring at home, that's four guys who started the year with Amerks out of 12 forwards. And throw in defenseman Brayden McNabb as wel.

Brad Boyes and Patrick Kaleta, who won't play tonight, are also skating. There are seven defensemen on the ice. Ruff said this morning on his weekly radio appearance that McNabb is back in, so I would guess Marc-Andre Gragnani is going to sit. UPDATE: Tyler Myers has joined the team as well to do some skating drills with Teppo Numminen.

Nick Foligno was swarmed in the Sens' dressing room for a chat about his brother. He said their father and former Sabres captain Mike Foligno is planning on being here tonight as well as about 30 friends/family from Sudbury, which is about five hours ago.

More from both sides after the Sabres complete their skate.
