Andrej Meszaros (head) will be a game-time decision Wednesday against Toronto.

Andrej Meszaros will tag in for Tyson Strachan against the Ottaw Senators on Tuesday night.

"We weren't too happy with one part of our defensive corps last game," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. "So Meszaros is going to get in. He's an experienced guy playing against his ex-team; you never know. So that was the reason why." Meszaros doesn't ring in with much fantasy value, he has a goal and six points with 28 PIMs through 34 games thus far. Strachan for his part is no better, with five points and 28 PIMs in 30 games.
