No change in lines at morning skate

For now at least, Lindy Ruff hasn't changed the Sabres' lines.

The Internet wolves are howling about getting Derek Roy out of the middle between Thomas Vanek and Jason Pominville but it hasn't happened at today's morning skate. It's status quo as it was on the road trip. That means the struggling top line is still together and the lines remain: 


All seven defensemen are on the ice, as are both goalies. Will be interesting to see who goes tonight. UPDATE: It's going to be Miller, according to Lindy Ruff.

It's the first time at FNC for Cody Hodgson and Alexander Sulzer since the trade with Vancouver. Ruff is also on the ice. He rejoined the team on the road trip, but this is his first time back on the ice at home since he broke three ribs last month during a practice collision with Jordan Leopold.
