News
Gionta scored his seventh goal of the season Wednesday in a 4-2 win over Montreal.

Gionta's tally was of the empty-net variety and put the game on ice for Buffalo with 13 seconds remaining. The veteran has scored twice in the last three games and is shooting the puck quite a bit lately (17 SOG in his last five games), and while he's not likely to provide much by way of fantasy value, the seven-time 20-goal scorer is worth jotting down on your watch list.

News
As expected, Gorges (upper body) will return to action Wednesday against the Canadiens.

Gorges will skate alongside Rasmus Ristolainen on the Sabres' top pairing in Wednesday's contest. The 31-year-old blueliner has tallied just seven points (one goal, six assists) in 45 games this season.

News
Sabres coach Dan Blysma confirmed that Deslauriers (lower body) will return Wednesday against the Canadiens, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.

Deslauriers has been given the green light to come back from his lower-body injury after reportedly looking good in practice Tuesday. A physical winger, Deslauriers is averaging 2.68 hits per game this season and that's second only to Evander Kane in terms of hits output among Sabres.

Injuries
Lower Body - Day-To-Day (Updated - 2/5/16)
News
Foligno (lower body) will not be taking the trip for Saturday's tilt in Boston, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.

The injury must have occurred during Thursday's game against Boston, though there was no word of it until Friday. Foligno could return Tuesday to take on the Panthers at home, but expect the Sabres to recall another forward for the time being.

Chad Johnson, # 31

News
Johnson turned aside 31 of 33 shots through 65 minutes Thursday, but gave up the only goal of the shootout in a 3-2 loss to the Bruins.

With Robin Lehner finally back in the fold, Johnson won't likely be needed to make all that many starts down the stretch, but it's nice to see him acquit himself well in this one after he struggled in his final start before the break. He'll most likely see action again next Thursday or Friday, as the Sabres play a back-to-back set those days.

News
Kane poured 11 shots on goal, putting one of them into the back of the net, and collected two penalty minutes Thursday in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins.

Kane's scored four goals in the last eight games, but with no assists in that span and a plus-minus that suffers from playing for the sad-sack Sabres, he's falling well short of his stated goals from the beginning of the season. Remember when Kane said he thought 40 or 50 goals would be this year? His current total of 12 is quite a far cry from that.

Robin Lehner, # 40
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPW-L-OTSOSV%GAA

News
Lehner was great Wednesday, stopping 33 of 35 shots in a 4-2 road win over the Canadiens.

The big Swedish netminder has now allowed two goals in four straight starts. He's practically stood on his head during that span, turning aside 33 shots or more in each outing. It's shocking to think that Wednesday's triumph over the Habs was just Lehner's second win of the season, which is, of course, a byproduct of his lengthy absence due to a high ankle sprain suffered in the season opener. Nonetheless, look for head coach Dan Bylsma to keep sticking Lehner between the pipes, where he'll undoubtedly continue to face a ton of rubber on a rather porous Sabres team.

News
Reinhart (upper body) will play Wednesday night against the Canadiens, Paul Hamilton of WGR 550 reports.

Sabres coach Dan Blysma indicated that Reinhart looked good in practice Tuesday, and now he's set to reprise his role as a playmaker situated in the top-six group of forwards. The rookie has shown flashes of his offensive potential this season, owning 20 points in 47 games.
