Buffalo Sabres-New York Islanders: The Flu Hits the Sabres Lineup Hard


It seems as every team is now at battle with the flu early this season, and the Buffalo Sabres are no different.

First to come down with the virus was forward Clarke Macarthur who found a way to play through it. Last night center Paul Gaustad was out of the Sabres lineup with the same illness. And now rumor has it that Patrick Kaleta has become the next victim.

On a night that has been set aside for tricksĀ or treats, it seems it is only tricks that the Sabres are going to get.

Defenseman/part time forward Nathen Paetsch has been penciled in to fill in for the absence of Kaleta. Andrej Sekera is rumored to also be ready to go and will more than likely be on a line with Steve Montador.

The fourth line of Buffalo has been a pillar of strength this season. And with any luck this will not change due to the nasty trick played on the Buffalo Sabres.
