Sabres send 3 to Amerks

BUFFALO – The Sabres sent wingers Nick Baptiste and Cole Schneider and defenseman Justin Falk back to the AHL today.

Hours after playing in the Sabres’ 4-2 road loss Saturday in New Jersey, all three skated in the Rochester Americans’ 3-2 road win against the Springfield Thunderbirds this afternoon.

Baptiste scored two goals, upping his AHL season total to five goals and seven points in six games.

The Sabres, who have been dealing with injuries all season, have limited salary cap space, so sending players down between games helps save some money.
