This is the sort of the fantasy twilight zone. Ryan Miller is on an 8-2-2 run which has catapulted the Buffalo Sabres back into the playoff mix. A lot of people, including some experts, had given up on the goaltender. That is just what happens sometimes in fantasy hockey. It just offers some hope going into the big fantasy weekend. At any rate, looking back on the six game Friday Night, here is our Fantasy POTN.
Ryan Miller, G, Buffalo Sabres -- Miller stopped 35 of 36 shots tonight in a huge 2-1 SO win over the Boston Bruins. When a goalie gives up one or none goals in eight of his last 12 starts, you have to stand up and take notice. Is this too little too late? Yes a lot of these games are at home but at least for your fantasy bottom line, Miller has been more than helpful. The key may be tonight against the Rangers. A win really may be a springboard going forward.

The Sabres just can’t decide on whether or not they want to be bad and bottom out, or good and make a run to the playoffs.

There’s no worse feeling for a team in the NHL than losing in overtime or a shootout just as the Rangers did last night against their rivals, the New York Islanders. But there is no better feeling than to come out the very next night and win in overtime or a shootout just as the Rangers did this evening against the Buffalo Sabres in front of their home crowd. In my opinion,...
Something has got to be done about Ryan Miller. No, the Bruins probably shouldn't run him over again, but maybe a reminder of that Milan Lucic hit could rattle the Sabres goalie. Miller's shut out the Bruins for over five periods of play and is looking awfully confident through two periods on Friday night. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette has some ideas on some mind games the...
