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.
