BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres goalie Jhonas Enroth will not join the NHL's worst team on its upcoming five-game road trip after he sustained a lower-body injury in Sunday's 2-0 loss to Montreal.
''He's going to get further evaluation and stay behind,'' coach Ted Nolan said Monday. ''Right now it looks at least a little bit better today than it did yesterday.''
The Sabres (19-41-8) will likely start rookie Nathan Lieuwen Tuesday in Calgary. Lieuwen stopped all 10 shots he faced in his NHL debut on Sunday after being called up from AHL Rochester earlier in the day.
Nolan said injured backup Michal Neuvirth will travel with the Sabres, but may not be available to play Tuesday. Neuvirth has missed two games with a lower-body injury and was able to work out on the ice Monday.
