Lindy Ruff audio: Sekera out for Sabres, McCormick cleared to play

BOSTON -- The Sabres will again turn to newcomer Alexander Sulzer on defense tonight against Boston, with blue-liner Andrej Sekera sidelined by flu-like symptoms. Sekera did not even make the trip to Boston with the Sabres but could join the team in Ottawa if his health improves.

Forward Cody McCormick, who has been sidelined by a concussion, has been cleared to play. The tough winger will take part in the pregame warm-up against the Bruins in TD Garden but is likely to sit.

Jochen Hecht, who also has a concussion, has "good days and bad days," according to coach Lindy Ruff. It remains unlikely the 34-year-old will return this season.
