BUFFALO – Sabres winger Marcus Foligno, who said a deep-tissue bruise kept him out of Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss in Boston, practiced today and could play Tuesday against Florida.
“We’ll see how tomorrow is,” Foligno said this afternoon inside the First Niagara Center. “Right now, it’s just a pain tolerance. That’s all I can really say. Nothing really major, but it was just a (lower-body) tweak.”
Foligno, who said he had a jammed into him late Thursday, briefly left today’s session before returning minutes later.
The Sabres, however, could still be without one of their regular forwards against the Panthers. A lower-body injury kept winger Zemgus Girgensons from practicing today.
“Hoping this was nothing more than a maintenance day for Zemgus,” Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said.
The Sabres still have forward Dan Catenacci up from the AHL.
Meanwhile, Bylsma said winger Tyler Ennis, out since Dec. 30 with a suspected concussion, is still “no better than week-to-week.” Ennis has been skating on his own.
“I don’t have where he’s at progression-wise,” Bylsma said.
