Rick Jeanneret Scratched Again Tonight

One night after the Buffalo Sabres called on Paul Hamilton to call the play by play for Rick Jeanneret who is under the weather – it appears Rick will miss more time.

To call the game tonight the Buffalo Sabres have asked Kevin Slyvester to call tonights play-by-play in Toronto as the Buffalo Sabres head north to take on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Paul Hamilton did an excellent job of calling the game from what I hear, I listened to the NBC broadcast – but listening to radio reactions – and knowing Paul’s personality – the call sounded fine.

Kevin has filled in for Rick before on West Coast trips, and brings an element of energy to his calls as well, while it is not the same as having Rick in the box – Sylvester is an acceptable alternative.

We here at wish the best for Rick – and hope he returns to health as quickly as possible.
