About the Sabres: Buffalo has been in upheaval the last few days. Pat LaFontaine, the president of hockey operations, resigned Saturday. The move came a day after the Sabres traded goaltender Ryan Miller and captain Steve Ott to St. Louis for goalie Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, a prospect and two draft picks. ... Buffalo is in last place in the Eastern Conference, but has won its last three games against San Jose, Boston and Carolina.

About the Stars: Dallas, which lost 4-2 at home to Tampa Bay on Saturday, faces the first of a back-to-back set Monday. The Stars travel to Columbus on Tuesday. Monday’s game kicks off a stretch in which the Stars will play 15 games in 27 days, including four back-to-back sets. ... Backup goalie Dan Ellis will start one of the next two games, but coach Lindy Ruff didn’t specify which one. ... Defenseman Brenden Dillon, who missed Saturday’s game with a lower body injury, is questionable Monday. — From NHL online reports
