SABRES

B. Thomas Golisano agreed to buy the bankrupt team, all but securing its future in Buffalo after eight months of uncertainty, the Associated Press reported. Golisano must seek approval from U.S. Bankruptcy Court. His offer was to be presented to Judge Michael Kaplan today. Golisano has scheduled a news conference today at the Sabres' arena, said Laura Saxby-Lynch, his spokeswoman. The offer is expected to be worth more than $50-million, taking into account the team's projected $23-million in losses this season and a $22.9-million loan taken out on the construction of its arena. Defenseman Dmitri Kalinin could be sidelined up to two weeks because of a separated left shoulder. He was injured in the second period of Wednesday's 3-2 loss to Carolina.
