If there was ever a time for Ryan Miller to come back from injury and earn a shutout, this was the perfect night for it. Miller looked liked the Vezina winner he was a year ago, as he led the Sabres to a 1-0 shutout victory.
Patrick Kaleta scored the lone goal of the game and it was all the Sabres would need as they were able to keep the powerful offense of the Flyers off the board.
Buffalo looked like they were in trouble at times, but they managed to keep the puck out of the net. Philadelphia tried early and often to get in Miller’s crease, but the goaltender was unfazed and he proved once again that he can steal a game, or even a series if he has to.
The Sabres managed to kill off all five penalties they took, but didn’t have many opportunities with the man advantage. In fact, they only had one chance and could not score on it. The officiating seemed to help out Philadelphia as they Flyers may have gotten away with a few penalties.
