Sabres Notebook: What to do with eight healthy defensemen?

The Buffalo Sabres have had eight healthy defensemen in practice the last two days, something they haven’t had all season with the long-term injuries suffered by Zach Bogosian and Mark Pysyk.

“We’re there,” Bylsma said with a pained smile after practice Tuesday in First Niagara Center.

Mike Weber and Carlo Colaiacovo will sit out Wednesday’s game in Montreal but Bylsma said he expects to see seven of the eight play over the next four days, when the team has the matchup with the Habs and a home-and-home series against Boston.
