D'Agostini returns for Sabres; ill Ehrhoff a game-time decision versus Coyotes

By John Vogl

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Sabres are getting a little healthier on offense, but their blue line might take a hit tonight.

Matt D'Agostini will return from a six-game absence when Buffalo visits the Coyotes. The forward had two goals and four points in four games before leaving the Jan. 15 meeting against Toronto.

"That always seems to be the situation for me lately, but I'm hoping to keep up where I left off there," D'Agostini said after the morning skate in Jobing.com Arena.

The only player absent from the workout was Christian Ehrhoff, and the defenseman is feeling "under the weather," according to coach Ted Nolan. Ehrhoff will be a game-time decision.

Ryan Miller will start in goal for the Sabres. Drew Stafford is not healthy enough to return -- he's in the "almost" category, Nolan said -- and he'll watch the game along with injured Cody McCormick and healthy scratches John Scott and Linus Omark.
