Miller to play Saturday, Rivet not ready

The Sabres, who have five of a possible six points in their past three games, get their top player back for the next one. Ryan Miller made it through today's practice in HSBC Arena and coach Lindy Ruff said the goaltender will be in the nets Saturday when the Sabres host the Washington Capitals.

Ruff said no decision has been made yet on whether to send rookie Jhonas Enroth back to Portland or keep him on the Sabres' roster as a backup. Enroth started four of the five games during Miller's hip injury.

Captain Craig Rivet, who skipped the team's journey to New Jersey and New York because of the flu, still has "catching up to do," Ruff said, and won't be ready to play against the Capitals.

The audio of today's chats by Miller and Ruff is below.
