Tallinder Practices, Connolly Update

Via: WGR-AM

'Ruff said Connolly skated very hard on his own today, emerging with no symptoms from the head injury that's haunted the Sabres center since the Eastern Conference semi-final against Ottawa. Ruff added that the team would look to put him on a more vigorous conditioning program and, while reluctant to name a time table, said he would guess it would be a 6-8 week program – maybe shorter, perhaps longer – provided Connolly remains symptom and setback-free.'
