Knee earlier cost defenseman 19 games

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres defenseman Jay McKee will be out
indefinitely after re-injuring his left knee in Buffalo's 2-1 loss
to Philadelphia on Saturday.

McKee, who missed 19 games earlier this season because of the
injury, sat out Buffalo's 4-2 victory over Carolina Sunday.

McKee twisted his knee after getting his skate caught on the ice
in the first period against the Flyers.

Also, defenseman James Patrick is day-to-day with a shoulder
injury that kept him out of Sunday's game against the Hurricanes.

The Sabres recalled defenseman Andy Delmore from Rochester of
the AHL for the Carolina game.
