The Buffalo Sabres had a game-day skate this morning, and plenty of news was to be had.
First off, head coach Lindy Ruff ruled out defenseman Christian Ehrhoff for tonight’s game.
Ehrhoff suffered an undisclosed injury last Sunday versus Florida.
This news further solidifies why the Sabres called up defenseman Adam Pardy last night, who is obviously set to make his Sabres debut tonight.
Obviously without Ehrhoff and with Pardy, the defensive pairings will be different. Although these are not confirmed, John Vogl gives us a good idea of what we might be seeing this evening.
Sabres' latest drill has defense pairings of Pardy-Myers, Leopold-Weber and Brennan-Sulzer.

Secondly, Ruff would also name Jhonas Enroth (0-1-0) as tonight’s starter.
The Sabres will need a strong effort from Enroth this evening, who struggled in two appearances this season.
