Buffalo, NY • United States • 23 Years Old • Male
Brad Boyes had a powerplay goal and logged just under 15 minutes of ice time in his Sabres debut; and Ryan Miller recorded 29 saves on 31 shots to earn his 27th win of the season.

Tyler Myers scored first, late in the first period on the powerplay to put the Sabres up 1-0. Thomas Vanek was planted in front of the net and Tyler Myers took a snapshot from the point that beat a screened Lundqvist.

New York had some opportunities but Ryan Miller and the Sabres defense held strong to end the period with the one goal advantage. 13 minutes into the 2nd period, the newest Sabre, Brad Boyes, puts home a pass from Paul Gaustad to put the Sabres up 2-0.

Buffalo had a comfortable lead and looked to be in control, but 45 seconds on the PowerPlay; Erik Christensen literally buried a shot that beat Miller glove side.

Later in the second period Buffalo survived a 4 on 3 as well as a 5 on 4 to hold onto the one goal lead. Miller, again, held off the Rangers threat again on the powerplays. The period ended with 16 shots by the Rangers compared to the 11 by the Sabres. Thomas Vanek did leave the second period after blocking a shot and did not return until the third.

ryan miller stole that game...he's been hot...and that's a good thing...the d features four d-men 24 yrs. old and under, spastic play in their own zone, especially against a good forecheck should be expected...

the myers/buts pairing has been a good pairing...since their initial pairing in atlanta buts has one assist and is a 1 while averaging over 20 mins/game (24 mins in the last two)...myers has two goals and an assist and is a 1...the team is 3-0-1 in those games...it'll be interesting to see what happens when leo gets back, but i like buts' game lately

one more thing...sorry guys, not sure what's changed (a blog) when it comes to the sabres at the deadline...all the hype about spending $4m on boyes (btw, i mentioned that it could be a steal for a second-rounder) and no mention of rivet coming off the books...the sabres ended up spending around $600k more yet and are still $4m under the cap...just a thought
