Sabres goalie Ryan Miller returned to practice this morning in the Northtowns Center after taking Monday off to rest what was termed as a "lower-body" injury. Coach Lindy Ruff expected his No. 1 goalie to be ready for Wednesday night's game against Boston in HSBC Arena.
Ruff was vague about the injury, saying only that Miller was feeling tightness that required treatment Saturday in Dallas and again Sunday back in Buffalo. Ruff also said Miller wasn't injured in a 4-3 overtime loss to Atlanta last Friday.
The Sabres will need Miller this week. They play Boston tomorrow and Montreal on Friday with both games in HSBC Arena before playing in Toronto on Saturday.
