Atlanta goalie set to skate today

While the Sabres were skating their blades dull Monday, a player on the team they're facing next was preparing for his first skate in a while.

Atlanta goalie Ondrej Pavelec is scheduled to skate with the Thrashers today for the first time since fainting early in the season opener and suffering a concussion. Coach Craig Ramsay hasn't set a date for Pavelec's return to a game, but the goalie certainly won't be ready for the Sabres' visit to Philips Arena on Wednesday.

"He has to do one more test [today]," Ramsay said. "That shouldn't interfere with him at least practicing, which would be nice to see him get back out there and that's one step closer to playing a game. He's not at that level yet. We're just going to get him on the ice and we'll see what comes from this test and get him started back."
