Tallinder Practices, Connolly Update


'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.'
