One of the most popular men in the Sabres' organization will miss his third straight game Thursday.
Hall of Fame broadcaster Rick Jeanneret will not accompany the team to Carolina, he said this morning via text message. Though he's "getting there," the ill Jeanneret is not ready to join the team for its road trip.
There was no immediate word on who would replace Jeanneret in the broadcast booth. WGR's Paul Hamilton handled the radio-only broadcast Sunday versus Philadelphia, while the Sabres' Kevin Sylvester did Monday's television/radio simulcast in Toronto.
