Sabres could be forced to look left during free agency

The Sabres added to their defense and right wing depth Friday with the acquisition of Marco Scandella and Jason Pominville. It came at the cost of two left wingers, Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno.

They may have to pluck a left winger from free agency Saturday.

UPDATE: The Sabres have signed left wing Benoit Pouliot.
