from Mike Harrington of Sabres Edge, Well, it’s long been an issue among their fan base, but the Sabres now have a full-blown issue as a weak team across the hockey world in the wake of last night’s Milan Lucic-Ryan Miller dustup.
Read John Vogl’s full recap from the Garden, which includes Miller’s rant against Lucic—and the Boston tough guy’s pithy response that just about says it all: “We wouldn’t accept anything like that. We would have [taken] care of business. But we’re a different team than they are.”
Obviously so. The Sabres are getting killed. Billy Jaffe on MSG Live out of New York called them “soft” last night. The Hockey Night in Canada Hot Stove crew of P.J. Stock and Mike Milbury was baffled by the lack of response and the headline from this New England Sports Network column says a a lot too: “Ryan Miller calls Milan Lucic gutless for hit on goalie but Sabres lack of response was truly gutless.”
BEST OF MAXIM
Wow!!! Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic absolutely mowed over the Sabres all-world goalie Ryan Miller. To quote Andy Brickley, "just because the goaltender is out of net doesn't make him fair game." Brick also said, "that's a penalty you don't mind killing as a player." What concerns me more is the reaction from Ryan Miller, if he had made contact...
Milan Lucic reminded the TD Garden crowd that this Bruins team still has a little Big and Bad in them when he took out Sabres goalie Ryan Miller with a body check on Saturday night. Miller, who came way out of his crease to play the puck, collided with Lucic, who was barreling in full steam after mishandling the puck on what would have been a breakaway. The B's winger meets with...
Last night, Boston Bruins tough guy Milan Lucic ran over the Sabres All-World goalie Ryan Miller during the first period of last night's game between the Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres.
If you watch the video again you can see that Lucic does have a hard time hiding his glee on the way to the Boston Bruins penalty box. Like NESN analyst Andy Brickley said after the...

On Saturday night, Ryan Miller took a big-time hit at the hands of Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic. The hit, which was rendered at the 13:12 marker of the first period, knocked the starting goalies’ helmet off but did not immediately knock him out of the game — leading to further controversy. At this point you have likely seen...

Sabres goalie Ryan Miller is out indefinitely with a concussion after being leveled by a hit from Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic.
Ryan Miller has been one of the NHL's top goaltenders in recent years for the Buffalo Sabres, making his struggles this season all the more perplexing.
With Miller's frustrations mounting and his game consistently off, it's uncertain who will start in net Monday night when Buffalo looks to beat the Montreal Canadiens for the fifth straight time.
The Sabres (10-6-0)...
The Buffalo Sabres are in a tight spot. Their top goaltender, Ryan Miller, has struggled out of gates while backup Jhonas Enroth has broken out to a 5-0-0 start. What to do? This reminds NESN Nation's Dan Duquette of the similar situation James Bond actors face. If one's struggling, you might be tempted to bring in a new guy. But what if he goes stale next? Who's to say...
