Quick update: No updates today with day off

By Mike Harrington

BALTIMORE AIRPORT -- Ted Nolan said a ton after last night's loss to the Philadelphia Flyers but if you're looking for anything more from him or any of the players today, you'll have a long wait. The Sabres are on one of their CBA-mandated days off today and will return to the ice Saturday morning to prep for Sunday's late-afternoon start against Detroit.

The Red Wings certainly have to look at the Sabres as another tonic to their woes. In Thursday night's 4-3 win over Carolina, they ended an implausible 0-2-6 run at home in Joe Louis Arena and an 0-2-5 stretch overall.  

But they play Saturday night in Ottawa and then have the earlier-than-normal 5 p.m. start Sunday in First Niagara Center. And it will be their third game in four days while the Sabres will be coming off two days rest. Maybe the Sabres can actually lead after the first period two games in a row? Nah.

(Why am I at the Baltimore airport? Check out the fares to/from Buffalo for BWI and then do the same for Philadelphia. Then it will be obvious why)
