Hutton made 21 saves in a 3-1 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. Hutton is struggling -- it was his fourth straight loss. He's under contract for one more season, but his numbers have been less than stellar in Buffalo. Hutton probably isn't the answer there, just like he isn't the answer for your fantasy squad.
Hutton will guard the road goal during Saturday's game against the Flyers, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Hutton has struggled recently, suffering three straight losses while posting a 3.09 GAA and .906 save percentage. Things are unlikely to get better Saturday, as he'll be entering a brutal road matchup with a scorching-hot Philadelphia team that's won eight straight games.
Hutton turned aside 32 of 35 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Winnipeg. It was hard to fault Hutton on any of the goals, with all three coming in outnumbered situations. The first two were odd-man rushes while the third came on a rebound while the Sabres were shorthanded. Hutton has lost his last three starts, allowing three goals in each one, entering Thursday's home tilt against Pittsburgh.
Hutton will start against the Jets Tuesday night, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. After winning five out of six games, Hutton is coming off back-to-back losses in which he surrendered three goals each contest. He will face a Jets team that's in the thick of the playoff race, so Hutton will need to stand tall to avoid a three-game losing skid.

The 34-year-old goalie is now 12-12-4 with a 3.18 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 29 appearances. Jonas Johansson may be in line for Saturday's start in Arizona.
