Report: Vanek doubtful for Monday, but should return

Sabres Bruins PlayoffsMike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports that Buffalo Sabres winger Thomas Vanek is “highly doubtful” to able to play Monday night in Boston, but is expected to return sometime during the series.

Vanek injured his ankle Saturday afternoon when falling into the boards after he was slashed by Bruins defensemen Johnny Boychuk.  According to Harrington, tests revealed no broken bones or major structural damage.

I’m sore obviously from what happened there,” Vanek told the media following practice Sunday morning. ”Overall, it could be worse. It sucks but it’s better than it could be. Nothing is broken.”

Head coach Lindy Ruff indicated that Drew Stafford is undergoing tests today and if cleared he could take his spot in the lineup on Monday night for game three.  If he can’t go, the team will use a call up from Portland, probably Mark Mancari.

“I was a little nervous going into the game, but the guys who have been here all season made it a lot easier on me. They’ve shown a lot of support the whole week helping me out.”

Dillon Gee owns the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.

Six days after tossing six shutout innings against the IL North division rival, the 23-year old did one better. Gee put up seven zeroes and allowed just three hits as the Bisons shutout the Yankees, 2-0, Saturday evening from Coca-Cola Field.

After missing the final 98 games of the 2009 season, Gee debuted in 2010 on Sunday afternoon in Northeast Pennsylvania and allowed just two hits in six shutout frames. Nothing changed when the scene shifted to Downtown Buffalo.
