Sunrise, FL (WGR 550) - The Sabres have recalled Matt Tennyson from Rochester ,which, to me, almost assures that Lawrence Pilut will make his NHL debut on Friday.

Marco Scandella has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury and goes on injured reserve to make room for Tennyson. Tennyson is here in case somebody gets hurt in warmup.

Jake McCabe only played 7:29 in Tampa before leaving with an undisclosed injury. Pilut will become the first player from Rochester to dress for a game with the Sabres this season.

Tennyson started the season in Buffalo, but never got into a game. He has one assist in seven games with the Amerks this season.

The Sabres got to Sunrise late from Tampa, so there was no morning skate on Friday.

Join Schopp and the Bulldog for the pre-game starting at 6:00 when they’ll be joined by Phil Housley, Lawrence Pilut and one other player.
