THE MORNING SKATE
LINES SHUFFLED IN MONTREAL

MONTREAL – After hinting at it recently, interim head coach Ron Rolston has finally shuffled the deck on his forward lines, as the Sabres get set to face the Montreal Canadiens tonight at the Bell Centre.

The top line of Thomas Vanek-Cody Hodgson-Jason Pominville has been together since game one this season, but that won’t be the case tonight. Vanek has been dropped to the second line alongside Tyler Ennis and Ville Leino. The left wing spot on the top line will now be occupied by Steve Ott.

Patrick Kaleta returns to the lineup after being a much-publicized healthy scratch on Sunday in Washington, following the conclusion of his five-game suspension. Kaleta will man the right side of the fourth line with Jochen Hecht and Drew Stafford.

Coming off his 3-1 win over the Rangers at home last Tuesday, Jhonas Enroth gets the start in goal, as the Sabres prepare for a run of five games over the next 10 days. He's 2-0 in his career against the Habs with 2.42 GAA/.917 save% - with all that action coming at the Bell Centre.

Nathan Gerbe and John Scott will be the healthy scratches tonight, and Andrej Sekera is expected to miss his second straight game with an upper body injury.
