The Sabres are on the ice at First Niagara Center at this hour.

Assistant coach, James Patrick, is running the session while Lindy Ruff stays off the ice. Ruff suffered broken ribs when he smashed into from behind by Jordan Leopold during a 1-on-1 drill that went horribly wrong when the Buffalo D-man blew a tire and spun out of control.

More to come….
