The Buffalo Sabres have just not been the team everyone expected them to be this season, but it hasn’t been because of the play of Ryan Miller. The Buffalo goaltender has been incredible this season, despite repeated defensive breakdowns in front of him. Following the Sabres’ loss to the Penguins on Sunday afternoon, it sounded like frustrations were starting to get the best of Miller. While he wasn’t calling out his teammates or anything, the All-Star goalie was heated after Buffalo gave up a late goal to lose the game. “It’s just a [expletive] way to lose,” Miller told reporters, according to BuffaloHockeyBeat.com. “I don’t understand. Your guard has to be up at all times. They get right back in the game, one broken play to seal it for them. [It's] just preventable and not what we need to be doing right now.” Miller was eventually asked which of the four Penguins goals bothered the most. “Just [expletive] losing at the end,” he answered. It’s 3-3, get overtime. It’s 3-2, [expletive] make him come all the way down, worked too hard. I don’t know. “I thought a couple of tough bounces to start, good goals by them, a tip and a play off the end wall. We recovered and we played really well  It was our best second period we’ve had. … You’re either competent enough or experienced enough with the lead in the third period. It burned us. It’s not acceptable.” (Stick tap to CBS’ Eye on Hockey blog for passing this along.)
