Sabres' Connolly back on ice; won't play tonight
Tim Connolly, who has yet to play for the Buffalo Sabres this season because of two fractured vertebrae in his back, returned to the ice this morning for the first time in 11 days. He will not, however, play in tonight's game against Boston in HSBC Arena, and there is no timetable for his official comeback.
Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said the team will wait for Connolly to be fully healthy before inserting him in the lineup. There were times last season when Connolly would play in games and not practice, but Ruff said they will avoid that scenario this time. If Connolly comes back, it will be because he's 100 percent
