Marcus Foligno (knee) will miss Buffalo's final two games.

It's estimated that Foligno will need seven-to-10 days to recover, but given that there's less than a week left in the regular season he won't be returning. The short timetable does mean that his knee problem shouldn't impact his offseason training though.
Apr 7 - 12:15 PM

Marcus Foligno exited Wednesday's game against Montreal early in the second period due to a knee injury.

He had two shots and three hits in 10:25 of ice time prior to leaving. Depending on the severity of the injury that may have been his last appearance of the season. Buffalo only has two games left on the 2016-17 schedule.

Marcus Foligno registered an assist in the Sabres 4-0 win over Ottawa Saturday night.

Why is this noteworthy? Because it ended a 10-game pointless drought for Foligno, who plays on the Sabres' top line alongside Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart. Foligno is a nice source of penalty minutes and hits, so even when he is not lighting up the scoreboard, he can still be a fantasy asset.

Marcus Foligno is projected to play alongside Ryan O’Reilly and Sam Reinhart on Tuesday.

That's a step up for Foligno, whose usual linemates have been Brian Gionta and Johan Larsson lately. He's being rewarded after a strong showing in the third period of Saturday's contest. "His third period was his best by a mile, playing a big body, physical," Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said. "He was at the net front a couple times in the third. For three scoring chances, he’s the guy at the net, around the net, screening the goalie, getting a tip on some of those pucks and creating second opportunities. That’s the way we need him to play for 60 minutes, for every period."
