Justin Pogge Gets Call against Buffalo Tonight

Jack PorterCorrespondent IFebruary 4, 2009

Justin Pogge will start his third NHL game tonight when the Toronto Maple Leafs face off against the Buffalo Sabres at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo.

Pogge won his first NHL start against the Atlanta Thrashers, but lost his second to the Minnesota Wild, allowing six goals on 21 shots.

The young goalie didn't take the loss badly, saying he learned that he needed to work on some things.

The Maple Leafs also announced that Mikhail Grabovski won't play in Buffalo, but didn't give a clear answer as to why. Grabovski was benched for most of the second and third period in Tuesday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Also not in the lineup tonight is defenseman Tomas Kaberle, who will be out up to four weeks with a broken bone in his right hand.

Fellow defenseman Jonas Frogren and forward Andre Deveaux will also not play, as they have been sent down to the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate Toronto Marlies.
