BULLETIN: Enroth starting in net for Sabres against Senators

OTTAWA -- Let the goalie controversy officially begin in Buffalo.

Coach Lindy Ruff has elected to start Jhonas Enroth in net for the second straight night, leaving Ryan Miller on the bench for tonight's game against the Ottawa Senators. Miller was originally scheduled to play the game, but his struggles coupled with Enroth's 3-0 start altered that.

Enroth made 29 saves in a 2-1 victory over Calgary on Friday, improving his numbers to a 1.29 goals-against average and .958 save percentage.

Miller lasted less than seven minutes in his last start, a 3-2 loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday. Miller let in all three goals, while Enroth stopped all 15 shots he faced. Miller has lost four straight games and is 4-5 with a 2.49 GAA and .922 save percentage.

Miller walked into the Sabres' dressing room alone with an angry look on his face when the team bus arrived at Scotiabank Place.
