from Mike Harrington of Sabres Edge,
Thomas Vanek and Lindy Ruff reached the same conclusion Sunday after the Sabres’ optional workout: Vanek will likely play again in this series against the Boston Bruins although it’s highly doubtful the star winger plays in Game Three Monday night in Boston, as he was walking with a pronounced limp in his left foot.
But testing showed Vanek has no broken bones and no major damage. The Sabres are classifying it as a lower-body injury, but you and I can likely call it a severe ankle sprain. Vanek did travel with the team to Boston.
“I’m sore obviously from what happened there,” Vanek said of his crash into the boards after getting slashed fby Boston’s Johnny Boychuk. “Overall, it could be worse. It sucks but it’s better than it could be. Nothing is broken.”
