Buffalo’s backup goaltenders need to be playing extremely well to keep Ryan Miller on the bench. The No. 1 netminder will get an occasional game off, but he’s almost always in the crease for the next outing.

Jhonas Enroth kept Miller planted on the sidelines all weekend and picked up a pair of wins in the process.

Enroth made 32 saves Sunday as Buffalo beat Tampa Bay, 3-1, in First Niagara Center. Enroth earned the start after blanking Philadelphia, 1-0, with a 29-save performance Saturday.

“It feels good to get a couple more games and be a bigger part of the team,” Enroth said. “I got a couple good games here in a row, so I’m going to try and build on that.”

Enroth is 4-0-1 in his last five starts with a 1.37 goals-against average and .958 save percentage. Add in a no-decision and a one-period relief appearance for Miller and Enroth’s numbers are 1.55 and .951 in his last seven outings.

The roll comes after he went winless for 15 months.

“It’s a big boost for me, especially after that start,” Enroth said.

It was only the second time since 2007 that Miller sat consecutive games while healthy. Former coach Lindy Ruff rested him Jan. 30 and Feb. 1, 2007, to give the goalie a breather following his appearance in the All-Star Game. Enroth earned back-to-back starts against Calgary and Ottawa on Nov. 4-5, 2011.

Other than that, it’s been Miller’s crease.

“I had a shutout, so I was kind of expecting to play,” Enroth said. “I wasn’t surprised.”

He hopes he’s done enough to make his third straight start Wednesday when the Sabres visit Boston.
