Goaltender Ryan Miller has been ruled out with a concussion he suffered on Milan Lucic's hit on Nov. 12, but that may not be such a bad thing for the Buffalo Sabres as they get ready to face the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday. That's because Jhonas Enroth will be taking Miller's place between the pipes.
Enroth has been one of the league's best goalies this year, going 6-0-0 with a 1.76 goals against average and a .942 save percentage in eight appearances. In fact, Enroth has not lost a game in regulation since Nov. 24, 2010, going 13-0-1 during that time. Enroth has also outperformed Miller somewhat significantly this year. Miller has gone 5-6-0 with a 2.86 goals against average.
The Devils are dealing with an injury concern of their own. Ilya Kovalchuk has not played in the last five games, but could make his return against the Sabres. The Devils have gone 3-2-0 in those games, but needed a shootout or overtime in two of those wins.
