Full house at Sabres practice

ATLANTA -- The Sabres are back on the ice in Atlanta, and this time it's a full house.

Forwards Tim Connolly and Jochen Hecht are skating after skipping Wednesday's practice with lower-body injuries. Defenseman Andrej Sekera, who was limited Wednesday, is back among the regular defensemen.

No word yet on whether Jason Pominville passed his neuro-pysch test Wednesday. He is skating as the fourth member of a line with left wing Tyler Ennis, center Rob Niedermayer and right wing Mike Grier.

The Sabres return to game action Friday against the Thrashers, and GM Darcy Regier told The News he wants more focus and passion.

And by the way, the San Francisco Giants moved one step closer to their World Series title.
