USA Hockey knows everything it needs to know about Ryan Miller. Just to be sure, Miller put another gem on his resume just a few days before the organization names its Olympic squad.
Miller made 49 saves Sunday evening, lifting the Sabres to a 2-1 shootout victory over Washington.
Steve Ott scored the deciding goal in front of the sellout crowd of 19,070 in First Niagara Center, but Miller was the star. He made 12 stops on rapid-firing Alexander Ovechkin. Miller also stopped all six shootout attempts by the Capitals.
Miller made 44 saves in regulation as the consistent Capitals took 15 shots in each of the three periods. Buffalo managed just 16 shots in regulation, including three in the first and five in the third. The final total was 50-17.
The United States will name its 2014 Olympic team Wednesday, and Miller is a lock to be selected. He’s the front-runner to start.
The Capitals wasted little time showing Miller it would be a busy evening. They opened a 10-0 shot advantage ...

It’s difficult to say which is harder to believe: all the stuff that happened to the Sabres in 2013 or the fact they’re ending the year feeling good about things.
This calendar year was as mind-blowing as they come for Buffalo’s hockey team. In order, there was:
• The lockout.
• The firing of coach Lindy Ruff.
• The trades of numerous veterans, including captain Jason...

You don't need to be a lip reader to understand what Ruff was saying after one ref called it a goal but was overruled by the other on-ice officials.
