Clowe \'day to day\' after injury vs. Florida

New Jersey Devils forward Ryane Clowe will not play Tuesday against the Buffalo Sabres due to an injury sustained Monday against the Florida Panthers.

Clowe was hit hard by Panthers forward Quinton Howden late in the second period and needed help leaving the ice. He did not return to the game.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told The (Bergen) Record that Clowe is "fine" but is "day to day." He did not accompany the team on its trip to Buffalo.

The Devils did not hold a morning skate Tuesday, so the makeup of their lineup won't be known until game time. One player who could take his spot is forward Tim Sestito, who was one of two players to take the ice Tuesday morning. Sestito hasn't played since being elbowed in the head by Minnesota Wild defenseman Nate Prosser on March 20.

"I haven't had any setbacks," Sestito told The (Bergen) Record. "I've felt fine. I just needed some time practice and skates and stuff, but since then I feel like I'm up to speed."

The Sabres will keep the same lineup from their most recent game, with the exception being Ville Leino drawing into the lineup in place of Nicolas Deslauriers. Coach Ted Nolan said Deslauriers won't play after being with his wife for the birth of the couple's daughter Monday.

"He didn’t have too much sleep the last day or so," Nolan told the Buffalo News. "He'll spend some time with his newborn and his wife, and he'll be back ready to go [Wednesday]."
