No morning skate for Sabres

CHICAGO -- The Sabres canceled their morning skate today at the United Center late last night so we won't have any updates for you until after meeting with Lindy Ruff at approximately 4:30 Eastern time.  The game is at 7:30 Eastern on NBC Sports Network, so all you Time Warner customers can rejoin the suffering for at least one night.

Because of the 6:30 local start, the Sabres (like most teams would) opted against their usual 11:30 a.m. morning skate on the road. The Sabres contemplated going at 9:30 a.m. but decided last night not to do that either. The biggest item hanging because we won't see a workout is who is in goal tonight. The guess is Jhonas Enroth, and I'm figuring Ruff gives us no clues in his pregame chat. So that means wait until the team takes the warmup shortly after 7 p.m. to find out.

In case you missed today's stories, here's some of the words of Ruff after practice yesterday. 

I had a chance to talk to Patrick Kane yesterday, and the South Buffalo native is happy to face his hometown team again and trying to kick-start his season.

Jerry Sullivan's notes column today leads off with this question: How can Ruff ride Ryan Miller in net when Enroth has better numbers?

Keep it here for the latest Sabres news and be sure to join our live game blog beginning tonight at 7:30
