With their next game on Tuesday, the Sabres have sent defenseman Casey Nelson and forwards Hudson Fasching and Nicholas Baptiste to Rochester for some game action.
The Amerks have back-to-back games Friday and Saturday, so the three players should get some much-needed ice time, especially Nelson who has been a healthy scratch the last three games. Fasching has been a healthy scratch the last two games while Baptiste played.
The Sabres have Saturday off, but return to the ice on Sunday morning for practice. There’s a good chance Nelson and one of the forwards will rejoin the team before they leave to face the Flyers Tuesday night in Philadelphia.
