Sabres' Miller returns to lineup
The Buffalo Sabres will have goalie Ryan Miller in uniform tonight when they host the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET, NHLN-US).

Miller hasn't played since a collision with Boston's Milan Lucic during a Nov. 12 game left Miller with a concussion and whiplash, but Ruff said Miller passed a baseline test this morning and will be available.

However, Ruff did not say whether Miller or Jhonas Enroth would start in net tonight. The Sabres play in Nashville tomorrow, so it's likely that if Miller sits out tonight, he'll be in the lineup against the Predators.

The banged-up Sabres also will have forward Tyler Ennis in the lineup tonight. Ennis hasn't played since Oct. 22 due to an ankle injury.

"We need healthy players," said Ruff. "We had guys that filled in and did an adequate job. The quicker we get healthy the better we can be."

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
