Sabres' Vinnie Hinostroza: Rejoins team
Hinostroza (personal) was back with the Sabres ahead of Monday's matchup with Montreal, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Sabres' Vinnie Hinostroza: Two points including GWG
Hinostroza scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Capitals.
Called back up from AHL Rochester with Alex Tuch (undisclosed) sidelined, Hinostroza made an immediate impact in his first NHL action since mid-January. The goal was the first of the season for the 28-year-old in 20 games with Buffalo, but Hinostroza stayed sharp at Rochester with five goals and nine points through 11 contests, and a top-six role in the high-flying Sabres offense could give him some short-term fantasy appeal....
