The Buffalo Sabres will be without Ryan Miller for an undetermined amount of time because of a concussion.

Sabres general manager Darcy Regier told the Buffalo News on Sunday night, that the netminder, who was run over by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic in the first period of Saturday's loss in Boston, will not suit up on Monday against the Canadiens.

The hit eventually forced Miller from the game after the second period.

As a result, Lucic has a disciplinary hearing Monday at 1pm et with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan.

Miller called out Lucic after the game and Regier echoed his sentiments today.

"If this hit and other types of hits like this are not suspended, we are opening up the possibility of losing goaltenders to injury," Regier told the News. "And not just injury, but concussion.

"When I look at the position of goaltending, in a lot of ways it's not unlike quarterback in football," Regier continued. "I feel very strongly the protection has to be provided and players committing these types of action should be punished."

While Miller was feeling better today according to Regier, the goaltender is out for an undetermined amount of time and will be replaced on the roster by Drew MacIntyre, whom the Sabres recalled from Rochester (AHL) today. 

This is Miller's second concussion in the last eight months, as Miller missed four games late last season after being struck in the mask by shots in back-to-back games.

Jhonas Enroth will start in net for the Sabres on Monday night in Montreal.
