BUFFALO – Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin and center Johan Larsson had maintenance days today and will be evaluated prior to Tuesday’s home game against the Colorado Avalanche, coach Ralph Krueger said.
Meanwhile, defenseman Brandon Montour, a late scratch with a lower-body injury for Saturday afternoon’s 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, practiced today.
“Montour, we gave it a good shot today, and he’s just being assessed right now,” Krueger said inside KeyBank Center. “But these are all minimal management of body situations. Everybody has the possibility of being available tomorrow, but we won’t know until the morning.”
In other injury news, Krueger said he spoke to Kyle Okposo, who suffered an upper-body injury Thursday, earlier today.
“We’re optimistic that these last few days have gone well,” he said. “But we’re definitely still a few weeks away.”
Krueger said last week Okposo, who has a scary history of concussions, did not suffer another head injury.
Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian, who was sick last week, practiced today.
