Ruff back on the ice
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A familiar face was back on the ice today with the Buffalo Sabres -- coach Lindy Ruff.

Ruff skated during practice for the first time since he broke three ribs in a collision with Jordan Leopold during a practice earlier this month.

"It felt good to be out there," Ruff said. "I'd probably win the stupid award for going out. I just felt that it's time and be careful that I don't fall and that I don't get hit."

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
