Analysis: Lehner will test his hip out during Thursday's morning skate to determine whether he'll dress for that night's game against the Rangers, in which Anders Nilsson is expected to start in goal. The Sabres will likely recall Linus Ullmark from the AHL if Lehner isn't able to go.

Analysis: Lehner had missed Buffalo's last three games with an illness but wasn't rusty at all in his first start in 10 days. Anders Nilsson has also been playing well, so this could be a time-share situation at the moment.
Oct. 24 9:20 AM PT10:20 AM MT11:20 AM CT12:20 PM ET16:20 GMT0:20 9:20 AM MST11:20 AM EST20:20 UAE12:20 ETNaN:� BRT - Lehner will dress for Saturday's game against Florida but will serve as the backup to Anders Nilsson.

Analysis: Lehner has started all four of Buffalo's games and lost them all, posting poor numbers with a 3.01 goals-against average and .892 save percentage.
