According to Claude Julien, Marco Sturm is "very doubtful" to play tonight against Buffalo.
Julien said Sturm is bothered by an upper-body ailment. Sturm was on the ice for the final minute of Monday's 3-2 win over Toronto. Sturm didn't participate in the morning skate.
If Sturm is unable to go, Petteri Nokelainen will be in the lineup. Nokelainen has been a healthy scratch for the last five games.
