from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,
Even though he had practiced all week, Tim Connolly’s sore back is now a major issue for the Buffalo Sabres because it’s more than just lingering stiffness.
Connolly was a surprising scratch from Friday’s season opener and Sabres coach Lindy Ruff revealed after the game that his center has a hairline fracture in a vertebrae.
“He was trying to get through it in practice all week,” Ruff said. “We felt he could get through it, the doctors felt he could get through it but he couldn’t. It just got too painful.”
