Miller returns to practice in goal for Sabres @NHLdotcom

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Goalie Ryan Miller has returned to the Sabres, participating in his first full practice with a team that has been struggling since he was injured a month ago.

He's been skating lightly on his own over the past week, but was in full equipment and taking shots during Monday's workout. Miller has been out since sustaining a high ankle sprain against the New York Rangers on Feb. 21.

He didn't give a timetable for when he would be ready to play in a game.

The Sabres have gone into a tailspin since Miller was sidelined when Rangers forward Scott Gomez upended him behind the Buffalo net early in the third period. Buffalo has dropped below the Eastern Conference playoff cutoff line with just a 3-7-2 mark during his absence.
