Tyler Ennis (undisclosed) isn't ready to return to the Sabres' lineup Friday night.

The good news is that Ennis did participate in the team's optional gameday skate. "He did a little extra work [after practice]," interim coach Ted Nolan said. "He's pretty close, but not close enough to play tonight. So hopefully, like I said, it's day-to-day. He's a lot better but you probably won't see him tonight." He has 14 goals and 30 points in 58 games this season.

Tyler Ennis didn't practice Thursday, but he still might be available to play Friday.

He sat out Wednesday's game against Boston because of general body soreness.

He was a lot better today and hopefully we'll have a good chance to see him at morning skate and go from there."
