In the middle of a weekend stretch that has them playing three games over four nights in three different cities, the Buffalo Sabres opted to hold a team meeting rather than a full practice at the Bell Centre today. The team arrived in Montreal late Saturday night following a 6-2 loss in Boston to the Bruins. A handful of players took part in an optional skate afterwards, including injured forwards Tyler Ennis
and Jochen Hecht
received treatment from trainers at the arena, but no update was provided on the neck injury he sustained last night in Boston. Miller was involved in a pair of collisions in the game, most notably a high hit from Milan Lucic in the first period that knocked the mask off his head. Miller remained in the game, but did not return for the third period. He was unavailable for comment today, as was head coach Lindy Ruff. There was also no word on whether the NHL would be reviewing Lucic’s hit on Miller.
The Sabres are back in action Monday here in Montreal against the Canadiens in a 7 p.m. start that will be televised nationally by Versus. They return home to the First Niagara Center on Wednesday to host the New Jersey Devils at 7:30 p.m. in another game that will also be on Versus.
