The Sabres lost the services of defenseman, Henrik Tallinder, a Box 29 defender, to a lacerated leg, not likely very serious, although he has been kept from skating in practice. The Sabres have plenty of injury problems, including Craig Rivet, also on the blueline, who will still be out another week or so.
Another defenseman who missed time last night from the Sheet, Freddie Meyer, a Box 30 defenseman, missed out the Battle of New York with an abdominal injury. Meyer wasn't a popular pick in the Sheet, so this has little impact on the Standings.
