FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Marcus Foligno, one of the many Sabres forwards who are struggling to find the net, won't get a chance tonight. The left winger will be scratched against the Florida Panthers, his first benching of the year.
Foligno has no goals in the last 15 games and only one in Buffalo's 20 outings.
"I’ve got to know that I have a long career ahead of me and just keep working and learn from this," Foligno said.
With legendary tough guy George Parros playing for Florida, John Scott will take Foligno's spot in the lineup. T.J. Brennan will be the defensive scratch. Jordan Leopold will sit with an injury, though he did skate today.
Ryan Miller will start in goal. Read his thoughts on the tumultuous season by clicking here.
