2/5: Tuesday Slap Shots

- With Maxim Afinogenov re-tweaking his groin in yesterday's practice, and Clarke MacArthur coming down with a bad flu this morning, the Sabres re-called punishing forward Patrick Kaleta from Rochester just 24 hours after sending him down. Kaleta is in the Buffalo lineup tonight, making his presence felt early as the Sabres battle the Bruins. - It appears that an injury to Ducks prospect Logan MacMillan isn't as severe as originally thought after a Saturday collision with Sabres defensive prospect, T.J. Brennan. With no apparent MCL or ACL damage, the Mooseheads forward instead looks to have a charley horse. The two players collided knee-on-knee at center ice after Brennan stepped up to meet the rush. MacMillan had to be helped off the ice and did not return. Brennan, the Sabres first of two 2nd round picks in 2007, was called for kneeing on the play and received an extra fighting major after Guillaume Monast came to the defense of his injured Halifax teammate. - After injuring his shoulder in a January 25th game against Lake Erie, Amerks defenseman Michael Funk is slated to return to action this weekend. - Speaking of Funk, the Buffalo Sabres Foundation is currently accepting bids for vintage style, game-issued jerseys of the former Portland Winter Hawk, as well as fellow prospects Marek Zagrapan and Marc-Andre Gragnani. Bidding opens at $250 each. The auctions will close on Valentines Day. - In the only game on tonight's Sabres prospect docket, Brad Eidsness and the Okotoks Oilers (39-9-0-4) host top-ranked Camrose (41-6-0-5). Backed by a strong outing from Eidsness, the Oilers handed the Kodiaks a 2-1 loss in their last meeting one week ago. As always, an update will follow the game.

2/2 "Q" round-up: Breault pots winner

Drakkar C Benjamin Breault scored the game winning goal, his 25th of the year, midway through the third period in Baie-Comeau's 6-3 win over Val-d'Or. He also assisted on an empty-netter, raising his point total to 55 on the year (1.15 ppg). Paul Byron scored his 22nd goal of the season on the power-play as les Olympiques lost to Quebec, 4-3 in OT. The 5'10 center added three blocked shots, and a team-best six shots on goal in the loss. Halifax jumped out to a 3-0 lead, and held on to defeat St. John's, 3-2. J.S. Allard (+2) picked up an assist on the first Foggies goal. The helper was his 40th of the year, good for 11th in the QMJHL. Defenseman T.J. Brennan went pointless and picked up seven minutes in penalties after a second period bout with the Mooseheads' Guillaume Monast. The fight ensued after T.J. Brennan injured Anaheim first-rounder Logan MacMillan with a knee.
