Enroth will start against Bruins; Omark to debut on Sabres' fourth line

By John Vogl

BOSTON -- The Sabres will use Jhonas Enroth in goal as they try to win three straight for the first time this season.

"He’ll come in and we’ll see how he fares," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said this evening before facing the Bruins.

Enroth is 0-3-2 with a 4.00 goals-against average and .888 save percentage against the Bruins. He his 1-6-3 with a 2.61 and .908 overall this season.

He'll get help tonight from friend and countryman Linus Omark. The Swedish forward will make his Sabres debut on the fourth line.

"Right now we’re playing much better, so to break up some combinations just to squeeze him in would be difficult," Nolan said. "We’ll keep with the so-called fourth line right now, and we’ll see how he goes when we give him some minutes. As we move forward here, we’ll see how it all adjusts."

Omark's preferred position is left wing.

"I was so excited to get a chance here in the NHL and come to a new organization," he said in TD Garden. "I was real happy."
