Ehrhoff to take warm-ups, could play for Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Defenseman Christian Ehrhoff may be back in the Buffalo Sabres lineup Thursday night when the team hosts the Montreal Canadiens at First Niagara Center.

Ehrhoff missed Buffalo's game in Ottawa on Tuesday with a muscle strain. Adam Pardy was recalled from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League and made his Sabres debut against the Senators. Pardy played 18:25 and recorded an assist in the 4-3 loss.

Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said seven defensemen, including Ehrhoff, will take part in pregame warm-ups Thursday. A decision will be made after that. Ehrhoff is Buffalo's highest-scoring defenseman this season with five points and has averaged a team-high 23:54 of ice time per game.

"Early indications are [Ehrhoff] should be able to make it, but no guarantee yet," Ruff said.

Simmonds hasn't played since the game in Washington on Feb. 1.

"I felt pretty good. I think everything went well today," Simmonds told reporters following the skate. "We'll just have to see what happens."

Goligoski a healthy scratch for Stars

Alex Goligoski will be a healthy scratch for the Dallas Stars' game against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.

The 27-year-old defenseman, who was the centerpiece for the Stars in a 2011 trade that sent James Neal and Matt Niskanen to the Pittsburgh Penguins, has zero goals and three assists this season. Stars coach Glen Gulutzan confirmed his decision to scratch Goligoski.

"Alex needs to get back to Alex's level. It's pretty cut and dried," Gulutzan told Dallas Morning News reporter Mike Heika.

Asked if he thinks he might be putting too much pressure on himself and trying too hard, Goligioski said yes.

"I think it's probably a little of that," he said. "I just have to relax and simplify my game, and just make the smart play."

MONTREAL – It will be initiation night at Bell Centre on Wednesday as nine players on either side of the rivalry between the Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins will be getting their first taste of it.

For the Canadiens, offseason acquisitions Brandon Prust and Colby Armstrong as well as rookies Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher have never felt it, while the Bruins have Chris Bourque and rookies Dougie Hamilton, Ryan Spooner, Lane MacDermid and Jamie Tardif.

“If you look at both teams there are some players who will be facing that for the first time,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Wednesday’s morning skate. “All I can say is they’ll figure it out quick enough what’s going to happen here.”
