BTB: GRIER OUT OF THE LINEUP
Mike Grier will not be in the lineup tonight as the Buffalo Sabres host the New Jersey Devils.

According to Head Coach Lindy Ruff, Grier's mother has fallen ill, and the forward has gone to be with her.

"We'll give him as much time as he needs," Ruff said.

With Grier's absence, Thomas Vanek was moved to play with Tim Connolly and Drew Stafford at the morning skate, while Nathan Paetsch was moved up to play forward.
