THE MORNING SKATE
MILLER TIME IN BOSTON; MILESTONE NIGHT FOR KALETA
Ryan Miller

BOSTON -- Ryan Miller will be back in goal tonight in Boston as the Sabres look to extend their winning streak to three games in what should be an emotionally-charged TD Garden. Tonight’s game will be the first professional sporting event in Boston following Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon that left three people dead and more than 170 others injured.

Miller’s last game was a 5-1 loss to Montreal last Thursday, before giving way to Jhonas Enroth for Buffalo’s consecutive weekend wins over Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. Miller has played in all four games against Boston this season, posting a 2-2-0 record, 2.53 GAA and .930 save%.

Luke Adam was returned to Rochester today, after scoring one goal during a four-game recall. The Sabres have just one extra skater, and recently-recalled rookie Mikhail Grigorenko will be the team’s only healthy scratch tonight. Ville Leino (upper body injury) is out indefinitely and did not travel with the team to Boston.


Patrick Kaleta will play in his 300th career NHL game tonight, becoming the 67th Sabres player in franchise history sto reach this milestone. The 26-year-old native of Angola, NY, played his first game in Buffalo on February 22, 2007, against the Ottawa Senators. Kaleta has 51 points (27+24) and 501 penalty minutes in his previous 299 games.


This is the fifth and final meeting between the Sabres and Bruins this season, with the teams splitting the previous four games. In the only game at Boston’s TD Garden on January 31, Thomas Vanek collected five points (3+2) as the Sabres came-from-behind to defeat the Bruins 7-4. Vanek’s five points are tied with Boston’s David Krejci (2+3) to lead both teams this season.
