Robin Lehner allowed three goals on 33 shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

The Sabres goalie allowed just one goal through two periods, but he gave up two in the third frame. The loss stretches Lehner's losing streak to three games. He's also dropped four of his last five decisions. Lehner now owns a 4-7-2 record with a 3.09 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage this season. He should only be owned in deeper fantasy leagues.

Ryan O'Reilly scored a goal in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

O'Reilly's goal at the 5:50 mark of the third period tied the game at one, but the Wings ended up scoring the next two goals. The Sabres forward has now found the back of the net in two of his last three games. He has seven goals and 14 points in 19 games this season. Kyle Okposo and Victor Antipin registered the assists on Buffalo's only goal.

Matt Moulson will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

It's the third time in five games that Moulson will serve as a healthy scratch. He has no points and a minus-8 rating in 12 games this season. Casey Nelson will also watch the game from the press box.

Robin Lehner will play between the pipes on Friday against Detroit.

Lehner earned a 32-save shutout in his last meeting against the Red Wings, so it's not surprising to see him tapped again. He has a 4-6-2 record, 3.00 GAA, and .905 save percentage in 13 games this season.

Kyle Criscuolo practiced on a line with Zemgus Girgensons and Jordan Nolan Thursday after he was called up from the minors.

Coach Phil Housley said the lineup will be a "game-time decision," but it looks like Criscuolo could make his NHL debut against Detroit on Friday night. The undrafted forward signed with the Red Wings after his senior season with Harvard University and he played a full season with Grand Rapids in 2016-17, where he had 17 goals and 41 points in 76 games. Criscuolo joined the Sabres in the summer.

Nicholas Baptiste has been sent to AHL Rochester.

Alexander Nylander (lower body) will make his season debut with AHL Rochester on Friday.

Nylander was taken with the eighth overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. It wouldn't be surprising to see him get at least one stint with Buffalo at some point during the 2017-18 campaign.
Nov 16 - 3:18 PM

Matt Tennyson (foot) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

The placement is presumably retroactive to Nov. 4, so Buffalo should be able to activate Tennyson whenever he's healthy. He has no points in 14 contests this season.

Taylor Fedun has suffered a lower-body injury.

It's not clear when Fedun got hurt, but the injury must be substantive as he'll be out for the next six-to-eight weeks. The Buffalo Sabres have moved him to the injured reserve list as a consequence. He has an assist in seven games this season.
Nov 16 - 12:20 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have summoned Casey Nelson.

Nelson has a goal and three points in 14 AHL contests in 2017-18. At the NHL level, he has recorded four assists in 18 career games.

The NHL has issued Marco Scandella a $5,000 fine for his slash on Tuesday.

Scandella did a two-handed swing with his stick at Pittsburgh's Patric Hornqvist's lower body in the second period. Scandella received a two-minute minor as a result of the incident.

Evander Kane netted his 10th goal of the year Tuesday night.

Kane opened the scoring just 3:45 into the first period. Unfortunately, the Sabres dropped a 5-4 overtime decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins. It took Kane 22 games to reach the 10-goal mark in 2011-12 when he scored 30 and this season it required 18 matches. This is shaping up to be a breakout performance for the Buffalo winger. Kane also concluded Tuesday's contest with two penalty minutes, five shots and four hits in 20:28 of ice time.

Sam Reinhart produced one goal and two assists in Tuesday's 5-4 OT loss to Pittsburgh.

Reinhart got his third goal of the season on first-period power play and he picked up helpers on tallies by Evander Kane and Benoit Pouliot (power play). The top-line trio of Reinhart, Kane and Eichel each finished with a goal in the contest. It could be time to pick Reinhart back up if he stays in this spot.

Robin Lehner was on the hook for five goals on 45 shots in a 5-4 OT loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

It was the fourth time this season that Lehner had allowed four or more goals in a game this season. He had been playing well as of late, allowing just three goals in his last two starts. Alas, his record now falls to 4-6-2 with a 3.09 goals-against-average and a .903 save percentage.
