Bulletin: Miller to return Friday

Lindy Ruff announced after the morning skate today that the latest plan is for Ryan Miller to return to the Sabres' net Friday night against Toronto. Maybe it's going to be a case of too little, too late but the Sabres need Miller in goal if they have any slim shot in the playoff race. And by all accounts, he's looked pretty good in practice the last three days.

"It's a big boost," Ruff said. "... It's tough to get by without your starting goaltender. You can miss key forwards, miss a defensemen but you look at Ryan's win-loss record (29-16-5) ... and that all speaks for itself."

The Sabres won't face Martin Gerber in net Friday for the Leafs as he got a three-game suspension today for his last-minute tirade Tuesday night against Washington. So it will be Curtis Joseph unless Toronto summons Justin Pogge from the minors to meet Buffalo again.
