The Rolston shuffle is on at practice

By Mike Harrington

Sabres coach Ron Rolston sat his top line for nearly 27 minutes in Friday's 6-2 loss at Anaheim so it's no surprise he's tossed up his lines quite a bit for today's practice in First Niagara Center.

Tyler Ennis is off the top line with Matt Moulson and Cody Hodgson and replaced by captain Steve Ott. Ennis is now back at center between Ville Leino, who landed on the scratch heap in California, and Drew Stafford. 

In addition, injured defensemen Mike Weber and Christian Ehrhoff are both skating. We have to wait until after practice for an update on their status.

The lines:
Moulson-Hodgson-Ott
Leino-Ennis-Stafford
Girgensons-Foligno-Flynn
Grigorenko-McCormick-Tropp

The D pairs:
Ehrhoff-Pysyk
Tallinder-Myers
Zadorov-McBain
Weber-Ristolainen
