Report: Sabres recall goalie Matt Hackett

BUFFALO – Why do the Sabres, who play the Penguins tonight in Pittsburgh, need another goalie?

Matt Hackett left the Blue Cross War Memorial on Friday with his equipment following Rochester’s ugly 8-1 loss to Grand Rapids and has been recalled, the Democrat and Chronicle’s Kevin Oklobzija reported.

Goalie Ryan Miller dazzled during the Sabres’ 1-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Friday and spoke with reporters following his 45-save effort. Backup Jhonas Enroth appeared to be fine on the bench throughout the night. Many expected Enroth would get tonight’s nod.

Stay tuned.

Hackett endured an awful night Friday, allowing six goals on 30 shots in 36:35.

The Sabres also recalled defenseman Alexander Sulzer after Henrik Tallinder (upper body) was injured.
