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?
