Enroth, who will be making his fourth appearance of the season and first start since Feb. 5 at the Ottawa Senators, will be seeking his first victory of the season. Ryan Miller started the previous 14 games (6-7-1) for Buffalo.
"We are playing things off of Ryan and how he was doing and felt this was a good opportunity to get Jhonas in there," Rolston said after his team's morning skate. "Jhonas has done a good job since I've been here working with Jim Corsi [goalie coach]. Really, for him, practices are his games, and we've had limited practice times, but in those situations he's certainly done a good job for us and merits an opportunity."
Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Martin will be a game-time decision, but the defenseman, who skated in practice Thursday morning with regular partner Brooks Orpik, said he feels good and hopes to be in.
"The last couple of days it's been getting better and today was no different," Martin said. "I hopefully expect to be in tonight."
Malone, who missed 13 games with a lower-body injury, was cleared to play after the morning skate. His return, while welcomed, does create a lineup dilemma for coach Guy Boucher.
"[Alexander] Killorn has been outstanding, [Ondrej] Palat too, so they are not coming out," Boucher said. "[Pierre-Cedric] Labrie brings us a lot of grit and enthusiasm. We don't want to change that. Those young guys have been terrific."
BOSTON -- The Bruins' seven-game win streak against the Toronto Maple Leafs is amazingly the longest the Boston franchise has had against its Original Six brother from the north.
That Toronto enters Thursday night's game at TD Garden one point behind Boston in the Eastern Conference, and riding a three-game winning streak, tells the Bruins that the Maple Leafs are a different team than the one it has handled easily the past couple seasons.
A glance at the fighting-major leaderboard, which features the Maple Leafs on top, also sends the Bruins a message that they're going to have their hands full.
"They've obviously got a big lineup and guys who can definitely take care of business," Bruins forward Milan Lucic said after an unusually aggressive morning skate. "With saying that, regardless of that fact, they've also been playing a good team game and been able to put pucks in the back of the net as well. So I think there's confidence up and down their lineup, from top to bottom, and you can see that in their play of late."
NEWARK, N.J. -- One day after New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello did a little roster tinkering, his team was back on the ice making preparations for the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday at Prudential Center.
The Devils play host to the Sabres (MSG-B, MSG PLUS) at 7 p.m. ET.
Last time these two Eastern Conference rivals faced off neither team could buy a save and the contest was an absolute barn-burner with 11 goals scored. Expect both teams to clamp down and play a tight-checking, playoff-style game. Pittsburgh leads the Atlantic Division and is just two points off the Eastern Conference lead, yet the Flyers are beginning to hit their stride as they look to claim two points and get back into the top eight.
• Top Line Production – With Scott Hartnell back in the lineup and Claude Giroux finding his scoring touch, the big line for the Flyers' needs to keep producing and put their team in a position to win games.
• Bryzy being Bryzy – The much scrutinized Ilya Bryzgalov has been playing well lately and needs to keep it up. Last time he faced the Penguins he simply let in too many goals. He'll need to keep the five hole sealed up tight and get a little help from the defense.
Penguins' Keys to the Game
• Capitalize on the PP – Capitalize on the PP – With arguably the deadliest powerplay lineup in the league, the Penguins need to capitalize on their inevitable powerplay chances. These teams play a scrappy game, so there should be opportunities, but it's a matter of capitalizing.
The move likely means veteran defenseman Steve Montador is ready to return from an upper-body injury believed to be concussion-related that has kept him out of the lineup since March 27, 2012, when he took a high hit in a game against the New Jersey Devils.
Montador had hoped to be ready for the start of the 2012-13 season, but he wasn't medically cleared to return.
That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
