Sabres goalie Miller returns to practice
Ryan Miller was back on the ice for the Buffalo Sabres after missing two games with a lower-body injury

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller returned to practice Wednesday after not playing in the team's past two games due to a lower-body injury. Miller did not dress against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday and backed up Jhonas Enroth on Tuesday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

In Miller's place, Enroth went 0-1-1 with a 2.95 goals-against average and .912 save percentage.

"I knew it was pretty minor. I was just being cautious," Miller said. "Jhonas was going to play in Pittsburgh anyways, so I just took that opportunity to rest completely and guarantee some rest. It just lingered a little longer and I wanted to make sure I clear up any issues because if you don't take care of it the right way, it turns into weeks. Now we're in a case where I only really missed one game in the schedule. Hopefully I get back in the rhythm where I was at and I'll go again."

Sabres coach Ron Rolston declared Miller healthy and available to play Thursday when the Sabres host the Columbus Blue Jackets. Miller has stopped 77 of 80 shots in his two starts this season.

Quote of the Day

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
