Sabres down defenseman Numminen for Game 4
Numminen skated at the morning practice Friday, but will miss his third consecutive playoff game because of the injury sustained in Game 1.
The Sabres, who lead the series 2-1, will play without three of their top five defensemen. Dmitri Kalinin (ankle) is also sidelined and Henrik Tallinder (broken arm) is out for the remainder of the playoffs.
