Sabres finish out west with Vancouver

The Buffalo Sabres finish off their Western Canadian road trip tonight against the Vancouver Canucks. The team has seen some of the brightest young stars in the game already, and tonight they will see two of the great veterans in the league in Henrik and Daniel Sedin tonight.

Two Sabres' prospects will face the Russians.

The Western Hockey League has announced a series in which the WHL will play Russia.

JW: Sick Day Mailbag (of tweets)

After missing the show this morning with, as Howard phrased it, "an upper body injury", I asked for some questions to fill a Tweet-bag.  Here are ten selected questions and answers... Some Bills, some Sabres, some beer, and the 11 NFL teams I decided should tank.

Source: "mild to moderate" hamstring strain for McCoy

RB left practice early Wednesday; status unclear for Sunday
How should the Bills handle LeSean McCoy for sunday's game?
  We HAVE to have him. Tape him up and get him out there
  Dress him but use him in a reduced role.
  Don't take any chances with NE up next. Sit him and let him recover
  Play him now because we need this win. We might lose to NE and Seattle anyway.
