Thomas Vanek to return tonight for Game 6
Thomas Vanek, out since being injured in Game 2, is expected to return tonight for the Buffalo Sabres.
Just in time, as the Sabres are trying to come back from a 3-1 series deficit and will look to build upon their big Game 5 win on Friday night. Vanek, the leading scorer for the Sabres in the regular season, will provide a scoring boost for their team as the Sabres try and stave off elimination one more time.
Still no word on whether Marc Savard will play tonight for the Bruins. I’m not expecting anything until later this afternoon.
