NHL: Ryan Miller Didn’t Need To Be Brilliant Against Stars

0

You had a feeling it was coming.

Ryan Miller played fantastically all through the Olympics and pretty well in the Sabres’ last few games in the NHL. He had to have a bad one sooner or later.

Luckily Ryan Miller’s “bad one” amounted to one bad period. After giving up three goals (and two leads) in the first period, Miller locked it down in the second and third periods in the Sabres’ 5-3 win over the Stars Wednesday night.

It was the first game since the Olympics that the Sabres didn’t need Miller to carry a sputtering offense through a low-scoring game. The goals finally came and the Sabres pulled back into a two point lead in the Northeast Division.

It looks like it may take awhile for Miller to regain his Olympic form. The question remains: Will the offense be able to bail him out when he has his “bad one”?
