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...
Milan Lucic ran over Ryan Miller. This much you know. But why didn't the Sabres retailate for it? That's what NESN Nation's Dan Duquette asked our Facebook fans and Twitter followers in the aftermath of the NHL's decision not to suspend Lucic. What's been a bigger deal: that Lucic hit Miller in the first place? Or that the Sabres refused to come to Miller'...

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...
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...

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic’s hit on Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller on November 12th, and its subsequent handling by the NHL, elicited strong feelings from fans and pundits, not just in Boston and Buffalo, but around the league.
To recap, during the first period of said game, Lucic was heading into the Sabres zone on a partial breakaway when he lost control of the...
The Bruins have won six in a row, but they wouldn't be the big, bad Bruins if there wasn't a little roughhousing involved. After Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller took exception to a hit by Milan Lucic, the NHL was abuzz with discussions of whether hitting on goalies should be allowed, where goalies should be allowed to venture and what further discipline, if any, Lucic should...
Bruins power forward Milan Lucic steamrolled Sabres goaltender
Ryan Miller when he was out of the crease playing
The NHL announced on Monday that Boston forward Milan Lucic will not be disciplined for his hit on Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller in Saturday's game.
A bad situation just got worse.
The Sabres have reported that Ryan Miller will be out of action due to a concussion.
Miller suffered his second concussion in the past seven months on this cowardly hit by Bruin Milan Lucic in the first period of the 6-2 Boston win on Saturday night.
Paul Gaustad was on the ice when his teammate and good buddy was run over.
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)...
Brendan Shanahan has concluded his investigation into the matter between Boston's Milan Lucic and Buffalo's Ryan Miller.
Shanahan has decided not to suspend the power forward for his collision with Ryan Miller on Saturday night.
Shanahan cites" lack of intent" on the part of Miller, hence, no suspension.
Sabres fans will not be happy about this...
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...
The Buffalo Sabres know they will be without their top player in goaltender Ryan Miller for the foreseeable future.
The NHL's general managers are looking to clarify rules about contact involving goalies after Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller sustained a concussion earlier this season.
