Irwin has been a healthy scratch during Buffalo's past seven contests. Irwin has made 24 appearances for Buffalo this year. Over that stretch, he's posted no goals, two assists, 19 PIM, 56 hits, 43 blocks and a minus-10 rating. He'll likely have a tough time getting back in the lineup unless the Sabres are hit with more injuries to their blue line.
