Coaches ultimately have the final say but there is the perennial masquerade that is the NHL Playoffs. Normally I give creedence to management over what players state, especially in the regular season, since it is the natural competitive instinct and characteristic to want to play. However, judging by Roy's statement that he is 100% ready to return, I'd defer to that and he would play.

Also, Mancari could replace either Grier or Kaleta since he was recalled.

They didn't practice yesterday and details were limited. Expect the unexpected with all these exercises. It can all fall under the cloak of hyperbole.

The Sabres just got off the team bus and entered Wells Fargo Center for their morning skate, and right wing Mark Mancari is with them. He had been sent back to Portland and played for the Pirates over the weekend in their playoff series.

Right wings Patrick Kaleta and Mike Grier missed Monday's practice because of injury, so it's possible one or both could be unavailable for tonight's Game Seven against the Flyers.

The Sabres will take the ice at 11:30 a.m., and we'll have more updates then.
Not that it matters who plays for them, because we proved through 6 games we are far superior to these guys, if our goalies and Powerplay did suck so bad this series it would have been a sweep and we would have won all 6 games. Just something to pass the time and look into what's going on with them.

Funny how they say how they are missing guys yet we have missed the best defenseman in the league for pretty much every game and our leading goalscorer for 2.5 games now.

We will win and I expect Steeg to come up big tonight as he has so far in this series. Him and Richie will do it tonight. I feel it.

Game seven appropriate to decide even series

http://nhlhotstove.com/game-seven-ap...e-even-series/

Quote:
There is nothing in professional sports like playoff hockey. And the pinnacle of the NHL playoff experience is when a series is stretched out to an all-important, deciding game seven.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres head into tonight’s game seven at the Wells Fargo Center to determine who will move on in what has been a very even series.

With the exception of game three – which ended 4-2 after a Kimmo Timonen empty-net goal with Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller pulled for an extra attacker - every game has been decided by one goal. Included are two overtime contests, as well as two 1-0 scores.

Holding a 3-2 series lead, the Sabres had the opportunity to finish the Flyers off in game six in Buffalo on Sunday afternoon, but failed to do so. Most-troubling for the Sabres may be that they held leads of 2-0 and 3-1, along with a 4-3 lead midway through the third, but couldn’t finish the job.

If they end up losing this series, that knowledge should haunt them for the rest of the summer.

As a matter of fact, Philadelphia has had to come back from multiple-goal deficits in each of the last two games, forcing overtime in both. Trailing 3-0 in game five, the Flyers came all the way back, only to lose in overtime on a Tyler Ennis goal.

The latest regarding the Sabres' lineup:

http://blogs.buffalonews.com/sabres/

Quote:
PHILADELPHIA -- Patrick Kaleta and Mike Grier are both absent from the Sabres' morning skate and they would both appear to be out for Game Seven. Derek Roy, Mark Mancari and Jochen Hecht are among 12 forwards skating.

Andrej Sekera is also on the ice, meaning seven defensemen are taking the morning skate.

The lines look like this

Gerbe-Gaustad-Mancari
Ennis-Roy-Stafford
Vanek-Niedermayer-Hecht
Ellis-McCormick-Boyes

Without Jason Pominville and Tim Connolly, the power play units are thin. At least right now, Tyler Myers has taken turns playing on both units.

The top unit was Stafford-Ennis-Vanek-Gragnani-Myers. The second unit was Gerbe-Roy-Boyes-Butler-Myers, with Mancari stepping in for Myers some.

Andreas Nodl, Jeff Carter and Michael Leighton did not skate today for Flyers. D-Danny Syvret came off before F-Ben Holmstrom.

Seems like we might be going with the 7 d-men again.

No reason for them to lose tonight. Finish them off so we can play the Bruins.

Maybe not, but he can replace Syvret's 5-10 minutes. If he's going to be mixing it up at the front of the net on the PP, I don't see any reason he can't play on PK and EV if they limit the minutes.

Syvret has been horrendous this playoffs. Maybe try another defender.
