JUST IN: Vanek Will Play Tonight In Boston
The verdict on Thomas Vanek?
“All indications point to him playing,” Sabres coach Lindy Ruff told the Buffalo News before the Sabres’ morning skate today.
The last several days have been an emotional rollercoaster for Thomas. He actually scored the first goal of the series less than five minutes in, but then suffered an injury in Game 2 that sent the Sabres in a freefall, dropping that game and the next two in Boston.
Vanek did get some good news shortly after he sustained the injury — no bone breaks or serious damage — but the Sabres still struggled. Hopefully, his return tonight gives them a boost of energy and some much-needed power play help in hostile Boston.
