The Thanksgiving Eve special may feature quite a different lineup than the last few games. Ryan Miller practiced Monday but couldn’t commit 100% to playing against the Pens, after missing Saturday’s game. Tim Connolly started practice but didn’t finish it with a groin injury. Jochen Hecht skated on his own after practice but is expected to play Wednesday. Drew Stafford isn’t quite there yet, still no contact. Rob Niedermayer had his knee scoped and is on the shelf for a couple of weeks. This has prompted the Sabres to proactively call up Luke Adam and Colin Stuart from Portland.
The prevailing thought is, if Miller can’t go against the Pens, Enroth comes back up and plays. Hard not to blame Lindy after Lalime’s gaffe, but when you only score one goal there’s not much margin for error.
Might actually end up attending this one.
