O’Reilly, Nilsson in lineup

Forward Ryan O’Reilly will return to the lineup after missing four games as he was recovering from an appendectomy. William Carrier will sit out tonight’s game with the flu. It’ll be his second missed game out of the last three.

In goal will be Anders Nilsson, who stopped 24 of 25 shots in Tuesday’s victory over the New York Rangers. Head coach Dan Bylsma said that Robin Lehner is a little banged up, but it’s nothing serious.

Tonight’s game will be aired on NBCSN at 8:30 p.m.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
