BOSTON -- It's not a big surprise the Sabres have only one goaltender on the ice for practice, but what is a surprise is which goalie it is.
Patrick Lalime, who missed Wednesday's practice with the flu, is the only one manning a net. Ryan Miller is absent, and Jhonas Enroth is in the back hall riding a bike. Upon conclusion of practice, we'll find out exactly what that means.
It doesn't take a news conference to determine Jochen Hecht is out and Mark Mancari is up from Portland. Hecht had a "maintenance day" Wednesday and is absent again. Mancari is skating with Adam Mair and Raffi Torres. The other lines are Tyler Ennis-Tim Kennedy-Jason Pominville, Nathan Gerbe-Derek Roy-Drew Stafford, and Matt Ellis-Paul Gaustad-Mike Grier.
Also, my longtime friend Kris Baker of Sabresprospects.com reports the Sabres have signed Luke Adam to an entry-level deal.
More info coming after the skate. UPDATE -- And here's the info ...
