 BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Sabres center Tim Connolly missed practice, but will be ready to play Wednesday when Buffalo opens its Eastern Conference semifinal against the New York Rangers.
Coach Lindy Ruff said Connolly was allowed to rest Tuesday a day after he left practice early with a sore hamstring.
Connolly, Buffalo's fourth-line center, had three assists in helping the Sabres eliminate the New York Islanders in five games of their first-round series. Connolly missed all but the final two games of the regular season because of postconcussion symptoms and a knee injury.
Sabres backup goalie Ty Conklin returned to practice Monday after missing the two days to attend the birth of his son.
