AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller has a lower-body injury that may force him to miss the game against the Boston Bruins.
Coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday that Miller does not have a groin injury. Ruff won't rule on Miller's status until Wednesday morning, before the game with the Bruins.
Miller returned to practice on a limited basis after missing Monday's workout. He was often stretching his legs during breaks.
Miller has mirrored the slow start of Buffalo, which has a 3-7-2 record. After backstopping the U.S. Olympic team to a silver medal in February, his 2.71 goals-against average is the fourth highest among five goalies who have started 10 or more games.
