ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Sabres are making a pair of significant lineup changes, one forced by injury and another by inept play.
Christian Ehrhoff, who suffered a lower-body injury Thursday against Los Angeles, will not play against the Ducks tonight in Anaheim. He will be replaced in the lineup by rookie defenseman Nikita Zadorov, who was scratched during the previous two games.
Forward Ville Leino will take a seat as a healthy scratch. Leino has one assist in seven games and a minus-2 rating. He took his first shot on goal of the season Thursday. He will be replaced by Mikhail Grigorenko, who sat the last three games.
