Jeanneret will miss second straight game with illness; Sylvester to do Sabres' play-by-play

Rick Jeanneret, the Sabres' legendary broadcaster, remains ill and will miss his second straight game tonight. Kevin Sylvester wrote on Twitter this morning that he will handle the play-by-play duties for Buffalo's game in Toronto.

Jeanneret skipped the Sabres' season opener Sunday against Philadelphia. WGR's Paul Hamilton did the radio-only broadcast. Sylvester, who hosts a weekday morning Sabres show on WGR, will handle the simulcast call for the radio station and MSG television.
