Patrick Maroon needed assistance going off the ice after taking a hit to his left knee from Josh Gorges.
The Ducks say lower-body, will not return.
IMO, Gorges went too low with the hit.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (October 7, 2014) --- Buffalo Sabres head coach Ted Nolan today announced he has named forward Brian Gionta team captain. Nolan also announced that he has selected defenseman Josh Gorges and forward Matt Moulson as the team’s alternate captains.
Gionta, who spent the last four seasons as captain of the Montreal Canadiens, becomes the 19th full-season captain in franchise history and will be the 27th player to wear the captain’s “C” for at least a one-month period.

The last of his 33 radiation treatments was Sept. 9.
“You don’t feel the radiation,” he said. “It’s the results of the radiation that you feel. They target the specific area where the cancer is.”
He said the doctors must wait eight weeks after radiation ends before seeing whether the treatments succeeded. He previously had been told that he has a 75 percent chance of recovery.
Jeanneret remains optimistic that he will return to call games this season, but there is no timetable as the team prepares to start the regular National Hockey League season on Thursday without him at the microphone.
“I still have throat issues, it is very sore,” he said. “A lot of people have said my voice sounds stronger than they expected it to. It doesn’t sound so strong from my mind though.”
He estimates his voice is at only about 50 percent, which seemed accurate from the telephone conversation.

“We do everything in our power to stop an offensive guy from scoring goals,. We do things to break a system, yet when we have fighters on another team we want to fight him? I don’t know why. …
“There’s a purpose for aggressive play, but there has to be a purpose (for fighting) — without it there’s no reason to do it.”

via the Buffalo Sabres PR department,
Kim and I are humbled and honored that the Wilson family has chosen us to be the second owner of the Buffalo Bills. Pending the NFL approval process, being the next owner of the Buffalo Bills would be a great privilege for our family. Ralph Wilson left an indelible mark on our community and we will strive every day to honor his legacy.
Our interest in owning the Bills has everything to do with the people of Western New York and our passion for football. We have knowledgeable, dedicated fans here and along with our ownership of the Buffalo Sabres, it is gratifying to reassure these great fans that two franchises so important to our region are both here to stay.
We are grateful to Senator Chuck Schumer and Governor Andrew Cuomo for their support and desire to keep our Bills in Western New York where they belong and to our team of professional advisors at Allen & Company and Sherrard, German & Kelly. We would also like to thank the staffs of the NFL and the Bills for helping to guide us through the sale process. We now look ahead to the NFL review process in accordance with League policy. If awarded final approval, we will be driven to achieve a singular goal: To win a Super Bowl for our fans.
Out of respect for the continuing sale process, until League approval is attained, we will have no further comment.”
