Jhonas Enroth is getting another chance to do something he hasn’t done in 15 months: win.
The Sabres’ backup goaltender will get the start tonight in Ottawa against the Senators. Enroth is 0-1 this season and hasn’t won since Nov. 26, 2011. He finished last year on an 0-9-2 skid and suffered a 6-3 loss in Carolina in his only start this year.
He replaced Ryan Miller for the third period of Saturday’s 6-1 debacle in Montreal and gave up two goals on 11 shots.
“He didn’t like his first game,” coach Lindy Ruff said today in Scotiabank Place. “We want to get him time. There’s going to be times now where either guy’s going to have to be ready to go in.
“I think in Jhonas’ case, he needs to win us games. He played well over in Europe before he got here. We need to put him in, and we need a big effort out of him.”
