Jhonas Enroth will make a rare appearance in the Sabres' net. Jochen Hecht may make an ever rarer appearance on the healthy-scratch list. Enroth will start for the first time since Feb. 5 tonight when the Sabres face the New Jersey Devils. Enroth is 0-2 this season and is on an 0-10-2 skid. He hasn't won since Nov. 26, 2011. Ryan Miller will sit after making 14 straight starts. "We felt this was a good opportunity to get him in there," interim coach Ron Rolston said of Enroth, who was not made available to the media. "He’s done a good job since I’ve been here working with [goalie coach] Jim Corsi and really for him right now his practices are his games. Again, we’ve had limited practice times, but in those situations he’s certainly done a good job for us and merits an opportunity. "Most importantly for us, we want to play well, play well in front of Jhonas. All along since I’ve been here, our job is to make the goaltender’s game easier than it has been. Whether it’s Ryan or Jhonas, we want to do a good job in front of him and be consistent and keep working on our game." The goaltending matchup in Prudential Center will be the struggling Enroth against Johan Hedberg, who is 0-6-1 in his last seven decisions.
