Panthers jump on top early, shut out Sabres on road

Rotowire: Mar 3 / 2:12p ET
News: Strachan (illness) will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Lightning.
Impact: Strachan first suffered an infection Feb. 22, but it appears he's been healthy for the last couple of days. However, with the Sabres receiving sound play from Andrej Meszaros of late, coach Ted Nolan will stick with the same defensive lineup he used Saturday against the Panthers.
Rotowire: Mar 2 / 8:47a ET
News: Strachan (illness) participated in Monday's practice.
Impact: Strachan has missed the last four games with an infection, but his presence on the ice at practice suggests he might be a lineup option for Tuesday's game against the Lightning. Expect coach Ted Nolan to clarify Strachan's status after the Sabres conduct their morning skate Tuesday.
Rotowire: Feb 27 / 8:45a ET
News: Strachan (infection) was at practice Friday but is "likely" to sit out Saturday, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Impact: Strachan has missed his previous three games and will likely miss his fourth Saturday against Florida. Mark Pysyk was demoted to AHL Rochester earlier, which suggested Strachan will return to the lineup, but it seems as though Nikita Zadorov is the one who will draw in. Strachan is considered day-to-day and should be available after the weekend. The veteran defenseman has very limited fantasy value.
