Status On Sabres Injuries

from the AP via the Globe and Mail,
Sabres centre Tim Connolly and defenceman Dmitri Kalinin could both miss the start of Buffalo's Eastern Conference finals series against Carolina because of injuries. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff on Monday ruled out any possibility of Kalinin playing when the best-of-seven series is expected to open at Carolina this weekend. Ruff said Kalinin is still listed week to week after reportedly breaking his ankle May 8 while blocking a shot in Game 2 of Buffalo's conference semifinal series against Ottawa. Connolly's status is uncertain after the play-making centre was also hurt in Game 2 after sustaining what is believed to be a concussion.
