Ruff: Pominville to see doctor, Morrisonn improving

The Sabres had a skate-your-blades-off practice today, with the players gasping for air and falling to the ice after the long run of end-to-end sprints. The two injured players were fortunate enough to miss it.

Defenseman Shaone Morrisonn (groin) and right wing Jason Pominville (concussion) have yet to rejoin their teammates.

"Morrisonn is better. He was on the bike a little bit today, so he’s progressing," coach Lindy Ruff said. "Jason is doing better. He’ll see the doctor today and hopefully resume exercise in the next couple days. The earliest would be tomorrow. That would mean off-ice first. He hasn’t done anything yet. He’s been down [to the arena] a couple times."
