On paper, it would appear that Anton Khudobin versus Ryan Miller favors the Buffalo Sabres. Luckily, hockey isn’t played on paper, it’s played on ice — where Khudobin was the better player on this night. The 26-year-old goalie made 25 saves to Miller’s 36, but the key was quantity, not quality this time around. The Bruins relied on their backstop to spark a bounce-back effort the night after getting snowed out, but also after coming out the worse for wear in a scuffle with the Sabres. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Khudobin our “Blizzard Bounce Back” player of the game. Who’s yours?

Anton Khudobin Giving Bruins All They Can Ask For as Tuukka Rask’s Backup

The Bruins probably should have won by three or four goals Sunday night in Buffalo, but Ryan Miller was stellar in net for the Sabres, and only allowed two goals (Boston added an empty-netter) in a 3-1 win Bruins win. Miller made a couple of highlight-reel saves and made himself one of the major story lines of the game. In the process, Miller overshadowed his counterpart at the other...

Kevin Freiheit: Sabres fall 3-1 to Bruins

The Sabres short two game winning streak came to an end on Sunday, as they fell 3-1 to the Bruins at the First Niagara Center. Backup goaltender Anton Khudobin made 25 of 26 saves on the night, leading Boston to victory. Khudobin made just his second start of the season, but now has wins in seven of his nine career games played, dating back to 2009. The Bruins used a power...

Khudobin stands tall in big win over Buffalo

After getting lit up on their home ice just over a week ago by Thomas Vanek and the Buffalo Sabres, the Bruins, powered by a strong performance from back-up goaltender Anton Khudobin, secured a 3-1 win last night in what has become a heated rivalry. Shawn Thornton was back on the ice along with Sabres' enforcer John Scott, who knocked Thornton out for several games with a concussion...

Khudobin shines brighter than Rihanna's forehead at the Grammys. BRUINS WIN!

The Bruins scored a big victory last night in Buffalo if we want to play up the revenge angle, but I don't. I don't see why people believed the Bruins needed to avenge Shawn Thornton because of what happened with him and John Scott. If an enforcer gets hurt fighting an enforcer, there's nothing to atone for. Instead, Boston came out and pretty much manhandled the Buffalo...

Next Contract On The Mind Of Andrew Ference

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, “I’ve put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this team,” Ference said. “The makeup and the fabric of this room – the environment.” Ference’s time in Boston, however, may be ending. He is in the final season of a three-year, $6.75 million contract. Ference, Nathan Horton, and Anton Khudobin are scheduled to become...

GARTH: Power Outage

Ryan Miller made 77 saves on the 81 shots he faced vs. the Islanders and Bruins. Wouldn't it be great if he could maintain a .951 save percentage? Only problem, is his teammates only scored four goals to support him. Miller allowed only four goals against (the empty netter by Lucic wasn't his fault). Wouldn't be great if the Sabres forwards could get up off their...

Kevin Freiheit: Sabres survive storm

The Sabres never have an easy time when facing the Islanders, but they found a way to win on Saturday. Ryan Miller stopped 41 of 43 shots on the night, helping the Sabres put together two consecutive victories since season opening wins against Philadelphia and Toronto. Despite getting outshot 43-15, the Sabres held on and escaped Long Island with a much needed two points at Nassau Colise...

Patrice Bergeron Beats Ryan Miller for Go-Ahead Goal on Power Play (Video)

With the way Sabres goalie Ryan Miller was playing Sunday night, the Bruins knew they would need to capitalize on scoring opportunities to leave Buffalo with a win. Patrice Bergeron did just that, sending a one-timer past Miller on the power play to break a 1-1 tie in the third period. Milan Lucic added an empty-netter, and Boston came away with a 3-1 victory. NESN’s Barry Pederson...

Second Line Foils Miller’s Superb Night As Bruins Beat Sabres, 3-1

The Bruins celebrate Patrice Bergeron’s game-winning goal in the third period of Sunday’s game against the Sabres. Whether it was the benefit of the extra day of rest or the results of cabin fever from Nemo, the Bruins came out flying in a rematch with the Buffalo Sabres last night. Again, it was a flawless third period that propelled the B’s to the 3-1 win and their best 10...

Sabres 3, Islanders 2

Ryan Miller made 41 saves, and Alexander Sulzer scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period for the Buffalo Sabres, who earned a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders despite being badly outshot Saturday night. Thomas Vanek and Christian Ehrhoff added goals for the Sabres, who won their second straight game. Buffalo was outshot 43-15 by the Islanders, who dropped...

Ty Anderson: Take Five: Bergeron leads way in win over Sabres

While the Boston Bruins sat and waited for the blizzard that slammed New England and postponed Saturday’s affair against the Tampa Bay Lightning to pass through, Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres were busy (successfully) surviving a 43-shot onslaught from the New York Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum. But as the well rested Bruins made their way to First Niagara Center for...

Sabres Still Looking For Answers

Photo Courtesy: Bill Wippert/NHLI via Getty Images Another night, another game in which the offense struggled, the defense was awful, and Ryan Miller had to stand on his head in order to keep the Sabres in contention for a victory. For the third game in a row, and second in as many nights, the Sabres were horribly outplayed by their opponent. But unlike the previous two outings,...
