Optional morning skate for Sabres scheduled to include Enroth

BOSTON – The Sabres, as expected with back-to-back games and an arduous schedule, have elected to hold a team meeting at the hotel in lieu of a full morning skate. They are scheduled to hold a Lindy Ruff-less optional in TD Garden, with Jhonas Enroth expected to take part.

The appearance of Enroth and absence of Ryan Miller doesn’t foretell which Buffalo netminder will be in the crease tonight against Boston. Enroth, who has made just one start in the past 22 games, would likely want to take a few pucks whether he was starting or watching from the bench just to make sure he stays sharp.

Miller, who has made those other 21 starts in the last 22 games, would likely get a day off from practice whether he was playing or not. With his workload and impressive run (12-3-3 in his last 18 decisions), getting rest would take priority over any practice session.

“I’m just trying to find rest where we can get it,” Miller said after Wednesday night’s 3-2 overtime victory against Carolina. “That’s going to be the way the season goes from here on out. We’ve got a lot of hockey and a lot of games that mean a lot. Just rest when you can, play hockey when you have to.”
