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 the hit and offered differing opinions on the play. At no point in the rulebook does it state that Miller was out of bounds by playing the puck at the top of the circle yet viewers either feel he was either ‘fair game’ or ‘brutalized’. Certainly a hot topic.
Regardless of your thoughts on the subject, Miller is now out indefinitely with a concussion. Miller left Saturday’s game after the second period, not the first, playing over 26 minutes in the process and furthermore ignoring the NHL’s concussion protocol. If you are unfamiliar with the process, here’s the official statement from NHL.com:

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'...
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.

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)...

The NHL's general managers are looking to clarify rules about contact involving goalies after Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller sustained a concussion following a collision with Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic.
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 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...
