Sabres G Enroth to start against Rangers; Miller ruled out because of sinus infection

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller has a sinus infection, meaning backup Jhonas Enroth will start against the New York Rangers.

Interim coach Ron Rolston provided the update after Miller missed the pre-game skate Tuesday morning. Miller is healthy enough to serve in a backup role.

It's the second start in three games for Enroth. He allowed two goals in a 3-2 shootout loss at New Jersey on Thursday. Enroth, however, was unable to finish the game after his right leg cramped in the final minutes of the third period.

Enroth is 0-2-0 in four games this season, and 0-9-3 in his past 16 appearances. He hasn't won since a 5-1 victory over Washington on Nov. 26, 2011.

Buffalo (9-14-3) is 0-2-2 in its past four games.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
