Enroth returns to net for Sabres, excited to face Flyers

PHILADELPHIA -- Jhonas Enroth has seen how raucous Flyers fans can get. He was in the net at the end of Game Seven when Philadelphia closed out its playoff series win over the Sabres last year. He's hoping that brief experience can help him tonight.

Enroth will start in goal for the Sabres for the first time since Jan. 18, ending Ryan Miller's season-high run of 10 straight games.

"I remember that it’s a really good atmosphere in here," Enroth said after the Sabres' optional morning skate in Wells Fargo Center. "The fans are crazy in here, and it’s really loud, so it’s going to be fun. I’m real excited to play here tonight."

Enroth hasn't started since a 6-2 loss in Chicago on Jan. 18. He is 0-6-2 in his last eight decisions. His last victory was Nov. 26 against Washington.

"I still feel pretty good about myself," Enroth said. "At the same time, my last game wasn’t really that good, so I’m going to just try to prove to myself that I’m still a good goalie."
