Gotta run to hear from Rangers coach John Tortorella, so some quick updates with more to come as the Sabres held a meeting with an optional morning skate that only a few players took the ice for:
---The backup goalies will go tonight as Jhonas Enroth goes for the Sabres against ex-Buffalo goalkeeper Marty Biron.
---Lindy Ruff said Jochen Hecht's lower-body injury will be short term but that Corey Tropp's injury, probably a concussion, is not so good. Ville Leino is back in tonight off suspension. Paul Gaustad remains out.
---Amerks captain Colin Stuart is here and will play tonight. That makes five players (Stuart, Matt Ellis, Zack Kassian, Paul Szczechura and Brayden McNabb) expected to be playing for Rochester on the ice in Buffalo tonight. And Tropp would be another.
