2011-12 Game 33 Buffalo Sabres (16-12-3, 35 points) at Pittsburgh Penguins (17-11-4, 38 points) Yes, Ryan Miller's wife has her own hockey card.  Want to see their wedding registry?  It's right here (seriously).

Sabres - Not really having any sustained success, but they're not tanking their season either.  The Sabres are 4-5-3 since their high-water mark of 12-7 back on November 18th.
