Enroth role up in air with Miller returning

LGA -- Good morning from LaGuardia Airport, where I arrived way too early for my flight back to Buffalo. That said, it sure was nice to zip around Manhattan and the highways leading to the airport with absolutely no traffic.

The Sabres flew back to Buffalo following their 3-2 overtime loss to the Rangers on Thursday night. It would have been a regulation loss if not for stellar saves by Jhonas Enroth, who started his third straight game and helped give the Sabres five out of six points.

The Sabres will have a decision to make on Enroth as early as today. Ryan Miller might be ready to start Saturday when the Sabres host Washington, pushing Enroth out of the crease. The Sabres obviously have more confidence in Enroth than Patrick Lalime, so do they keep him in town as the backup or send him back to Portland to play more games?

Whatever they do, keeping all three goalies on the roster would be a mistake. Remember Mika Noronen? I do. I'll always think the two-time minor-league player of the year would have been a quality NHL goalie if the Sabres hadn't made him the third wheel in a dysfunctional situation.
