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."
