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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
