Nicolas Deslauriers skated on the top line at Monday's practice.

The Sabres did some line shuffling after losing Evander Kane to an MCL injury, so Deslauriers is projected to play Tuesday alongside Ryan O'Reilly and Tyler Ennis. Even though Deslauriers is getting an opportunity it's likely that Matt Moulson could be double-shifted to provide more of an offensive punch.

Nicolas Deslauriers is questionable for Tuesday's contest due to an illness.

Nicolas Deslauriers fought Luke Gazdic early on in the third period of Edmonton's 3-2 win over Buffalo on Thursday night.

The Oilers were up 2-1 at the time, so one imagines that Deslauriers was trying to rally the troops. Either way, Deslauriers added five hits and a block onto his five penalty minutes during his 6:57 of ice time. He also spent 70 seconds on the penalty kill. Through 49 games he has 12 points and 55 PIMs.

Nicolas Deslauriers scored and assisted to lead the Sabres to a 4-3 shootout win over the Islanders on Saturday night.

Deslauriers scored the first goal of the third period to cut the Islanders’ advantage to 3-1, then he assisted on Zemgus Girgenson’s shorthanded goal less than four minutes later. Deslauriers had shown very little offensively during his cup of coffee last year and early this season, but he now has four of his 12 points over the last three games. He also has two of his four goals then, too. Chris Stewart scored the winner. Josh Gorges and Drew Stafford had two helpers apiece.

Since November 15th, the Buffalo Sabres are 5-1-0 at First Niagara Center.

The Sabres have been playing much better hockey of late and they've been getting results that they weren't able to achieve at the beginning of the season.

"I know we had a tough trip in Tampa and Florida, but we bounced back here [on Tuesday] and it’s just been awesome." The Sabres are 7-3-0 in their last 10 games. Buffalo hosts Calgary on Thursday night.
