Sabres expected lines for tonight vs PIT

Thomas Vanek - Jochen Hecht - Jason Pominville
Clarke MacArthur - Derek Roy - Drew Stafford
Daniel Paille - Paul Gaustad - Mark Mancari
Patrick Kaleta - Adam Mair - Andrew Peters

Jaroslav Spacek - Craig Rivet
Tony Lydman - Andrej Sekera
Henrik Tallinder - Teppo Numminen

Ryan Miller
Patrick Lalime

Ryan Miller will get the start tonight. Daniel Paille will be back in the lineup after missing Wednesday's game against the Bruins because of the flu. Nathan Paetsch will be a healthy scratch. Maxim Afinogenov will likely be back in the press box after playing last game.

However, Thomas Vanek will be a game-time decision tonight because of a leg contusion he suffered when he was hit by Milan Lucic in the 2nd period of last game. The Sabres will dress an extra forward in the warmup in case Vanek can't go (likely Afinogenov).

Edit: John Curry will get his first ever NHL start tonight for the Penguins.
