Rest for Ellis

Matt Ellis, rocked by Johnny Boychuk last night, was given a rest day today because he was still sore, said Lindy Ruff. Chris Butler, a healthy scratch on defense for the first three games, practiced as a forward today to replace Ellis. If Ellis is unavailable tomorrow, Ruff said the Sabres will call up help from Portland.

Thomas Vanek is not expected to play tomorrow.
