BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres coach Ted Nolan knocked twice on the wooden podium for good luck in hoping his team can finish the final week of the season without any more injuries. So far, the fates havent been kind for a last-place team thats losing players and games at an alarming rate. Nolan provided the latest injury update Monday by announcing goalie Nathan Lieuwen and defenceman Chad Ruhwedel will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with concussions. Defenceman Christian Ehrhoffs playing status is uncertain against Detroit on Tuesday. Ehrhoff was struck by a puck and required stitches to close a gash on his right ear. All three were hurt on Sunday, in a 5-2 loss at Philadelphia. Ruhwedel was hurt following what was deemed by the NHL to be an illegal check to the head by Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo. The league suspended Rinaldo on Monday for four games without pay. Lieuwen was hurt during a collision with Flyers forward Jay Rosehill. "I dont believe in luck, but its just been one of those things," Nolan said, before tapping the podium. "Weve got four games to go. Hopefully, we can get through this unscathed." Lieuwens injury comes at a time when the Sabres are already thin at goaltending with co-starters Jhonas Enroth and Michael Neuvirth both sidelined. The injuries forced the Sabres to call up both Lieuwen and Matt Hackett from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. Theyll have to call up another goalie to serve as backup and become the seventh goalie to dress for a Sabres game this season. And then theres the rest of Buffalos banged-up lineup which played Philadelphia with 10 players on its injury report. Its a group that includes defencemen Tyler Myers (undisclosed) and Henrik Tallinder (lower body) and forward Drew Stafford (undisclosed). At least, some are scheduled to return to a team that, with a 21-48-9 record, has four games left and guaranteed to finish in last place. Nolan said forwards Marcus Foligno (knee), Chris Stewart (lower body) and Torrey Mitchell (undisclosed) have a chance to return to play against the Red Wings. "Its pretty crazy. I havent seen anything like this," said forward Zenon Konopka, who has missed seven games with a back injury. "Its tough when youre not in the lineup and missing games. You feel guilty."

They were expecting it to start on Friday, and the earlier date made for a busy day of preparations. The special teams unit was on the ice a half-hour early while the main practice went a full hour on Wednesday. "We werent really planning on playing a game (on Thursday), but it all works out better that way," said forward Max Pacioretty. "We were trying to cram in a bit of system stuff as well, so it was a good practice. "We found out (Tuesday) night. I like it better that way. Theres a little less time to think. Were jumping right back into the action. I think thats when I play my best hockey, when Im not thinking." The Canadiens have been idle since completing a sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning on April 22.

Not thinking too much about the game. Just going out and playing." The Canadiens will have had eight days off between games.
