During the celebration of Hockey Day In America, it’s only fitting that the Buffalo Sabres American goalie Ryan Miller delivered this absolute gem. Tied 3-3 late in the 3rd period, Pittsburgh Penguins forward James Neal somehow got wide open in the Sabres zone. Sidney Crosby hit Neal with a perfect pass, and Ryan Miller miraculously came across the crease and snagged it out of the air. Unfortunately for Sabres fans, they managed to give up a goal shortly after that and lost to the Penguins 5-3 when they added an empty netter. [YouTube]
BEST OF MAXIM
Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres played a great game in goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday — Hockey Day in America, in case you didn’t know. With the game tied 3-3 with just over three minutes left in the third period, Miller darted to his left to make a glove save on James Neal’s one-timer.
Watch the awesomeness below:
Unfortunately for Miller,...
On the surface, Tyler Kennedy is the prototypical Dan Bylsma forward.
Good speed. Decent forechecker. Decent defensive forward. Not a European (oops).
But after a disappointing '11-'12 season with 11 goals (in 60 games), Kennedy has arguably been the worst performing forward in the Penguins lineup so far this season.
After 15 games, his one goal and two points...
It’s become an unfortunate reality for the Buffalo Sabres: late period goals against. And on Sunday, the unfortunate happened once again in Buffalo’s 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
For the sixth time this season, the Sabres gave up a goal with less than 2:30 left to play in a period — a Paul Martin shot with 2:04 remaining. It ended up being the second time that the goal given up...
The Buffalo Sabres fell 4-3 to Pittsburgh yesterday afternoon in what was yet another failed attempt for Lindy Ruff’s club to win back to back home games for the first time this season. The loss was especially disconcerting because Steve Ott’s third period tally had completed a comeback from a 2-0 deficit and had actually given Buffalo a 3-2 lead in the final frame.
You still have time to throw your hat! Pascal Dupuis’s 2nd career hat trick wins game for Penguins 4-3 over Buffalo. Penguins are now in 1st place.

Pittsburgh Penguins (10-5-0) @ Buffalo Sabres (6-8-1)

The Pens visit Buffalo on a cold Sunday.
The Sabres are 11th in the East and they haven't won two games-in-a-row since the first two of the season. They beat the Bruins 4-2 on Friday. The Pens are one point behind New Jersey for the Atlantic...
The Pens have unveiled a new Fan Loyalty Program. Read about it here. On the surface, there is nothing bad about this move by the Penguins. Rewarding fan loyalty with some free swag? It's a great gesture. The Pens made some moves during the first four home games of the season, too, with stuff like free concessions and discounted merchandise at the PensGear store, so they'...
The old adage about weather in Buffalo goes: “if you don’t like it, wait five minutes.” With a third of the NHL season officially in the books, it’s safe to say we can apply that same saying to being a Sabres fan. Consistency is perhaps the last word you would choose when defining the team’s play thus far and that has played a rather large role in why the Sabres have struggled...
From the St. Catherines Standard's Dan Dakin:
Standing there in front of little Rowan Langille was the guy whose name is on his favourite hockey stick. The guy who he watches playing his favourite sport on television. The guy who is easily his favourite player in the NHL.
Sidney Crosby crouched down to be at eye level with the four-year-old boy fighting cancer that started...
After a hard fought, comeback win against the Boston Bruins on Friday night, the Buffalo Sabres have a little more confidence brewing than they did after the last two times the teams met.
In order to keep the confidence growing, the Sabres have to pass a big test this afternoon when they face the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins in a nationally televised game (NBC) on Hockey Day In America...
On Saturday Night's Coach's Corner, Don Cherry weighed in on Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson's torn Achilles' tendon at the hand...I mean foot of Pittsburgh penguins forward Matt Cooke, and Cherry actually defended Cooke, suggesting instead that Karlsson was at fault for not taping his skate to his ankle:
If Paul Martin hadn't erased two years of disappointing play with his spectactular start to this season, a game-winning goal with under 3 minutes to play would've done the trick, too. Man, that is ******* huge. It's reminiscent of the big moments Sergei Gonchar used to provide.
But Martin wasn't the only hero on Hockey Day in America. Look no further...
