Sabres’ Cody Hodgson questionable for Flames; Alexander Sulzer nearing return

BUFFALO – Not much to report from Sabreland this afternoon following practice.

Center Cody Hodgson (lower body) missed today’s session and is a “possibility” for Saturday’s afternoon tilt against the Calgary Flames. Hodgson missed Thursday’s 2-1 loss in Ottawa.

“Cody’s still a little sore,” interim Sabres coach Ted Nolan said inside the First Niagara Center. “He tried to practice today and didn’t feel very well. So one more day. It’s a day-to-dayer. So maybe he’ll feel better tomorrow morning.”

Meanwhile, John Scott’s wife gave birth to a baby, so the tough guy didn’t practice.

“He’s a proud man today, for sure,” Nolan said.

In other lineup news, defenseman Alexander Sulzer (lower body, four games) is nearing a return.

“Pretty close,” Nolan said. “He’s probably after this, one more game he should be ready to go.”

Nolan shifted up his lines a bit, moving Marcus Foligno from wing to center and Steve Ott back to the left side.

“We tried Steve Ott there,” Nolan said. “Center ice, it’s a lot of skating. Steve Ott’s a little more effective for us going up and down the wing and being Steve Ott.”
