Update: Miller returns to practice; Rivet absent

Sabres goalie Ryan Miller returned to practice this morning in hopes of getting back in the lineup sometime this week. The Vezina Trophy winner has missed the past four games with a lower-body injury believed to be knee injury.

Miller was hoping he could return for Wednesday's game in New Jersey, but coach Lindy Ruff hinted there was a better possibility his goaltender would be be back the following night against the New York Rangers in Madison Square Garden. Miller said he felt soreness while moving from side to side during the 90-minute workout at HSBC Arena.

Meanwhile, captain Craig Rivet missed his second straight practice while battling the flu, Ruff said. The veteran defenseman sat out the final 6:51 of regulation and overtime in the Sabres' shootout victory over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Rookie Jhonas Enroth, who started two of the past three games in Miller's absense, was the third goalie in practice today. Nathan Gerbe worked out in non-contact drills after suffering a broken jaw.
