Miller Not Expected Tonight

Big news over the wire on Wednesday afternoon, as the Buffalo Sabres will be starting Jhonas Enroth against the Rangers, as Ryan Miller will be out due to an undisclosed injury.  As the post linked above states, the injury is thought to be of the upper-body variety, but that has not been confirmed as of yet.  For the purposes of what to put down on the injury page, Miller will be day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

With the Sabres only 3 points up on 9th place Carolina, this could be big news, especially if they're goaltending situation beyond Miller cannot pick up some slack and get some wins for the team.  The Sabres could do themselves a big favour by jumping past the Rangers with a regulation win, but the Blueshirts are hot going into this evening's tilt, so it will be interesting to see.

ImplicationsIn the draft, Benson G. is only trailing the last money position by 5 points going into Wednesday's action and missing out on a Miller start is potentially damaging.  If the injury is more substantial than one start, this could drown money hopes for Benson, especially with John P. coming up with a massive week already.
