BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Sabres are finally getting closer to full strength, with just three games remaining. Drew Stafford will return Thursday, the fourth forward to return this week.

With players returning, the Sabres returned forwards Nic Deslauriers and Johan Larsson to Rochester. Goalie Andrey Makarov will also return to the Amerks, after serving as the backup Thursday night against the Rangers. The Sabres will need to find another option to back up Matt Hackett on Saturday and Sunday.

Buffalo visits the Rangers Thursday night, before a road game at Boston Saturday. They will wrap up the season Sunday at 5pm at home against the Islanders.
