If you’re reading this by now I’m sure you’ve figured out I’m a supporter of Ryan Miller, but I think it’s fair to say his play explains why he’s the first start from last weeks action. He played in two of three games and although he lost both games, it sure as heck wasn’t his fault. He stood on his head in both games, but unfortunately he can’t score and his teammates let him down. On Friday he battled Craig Anderson save for save all night long as two of the best American netminders went at it. It’s only been two games but it certainly looks like the Miller of old is back.

He’s faced more shots (80) than any other netminder who’s played in 2 games and has a stellar 1.53 GAA which ranks him 6th amongst goaltenders who have suited up for two games. He also posted a rather nice .963 Save Percentage in his two outings.

The Sabres may be 0-3 but they certainly can’t blame their goaltender for that, he’s done his job.

    You almost have it about right. I believe top 3 should easily be given to whoever scores for this horrid offense and to the goalie who’s keeping these pucks out of our net for the most part. I’d say…
    1. Miller
    2. Girgensons
    3. Vanek
    Honorable Mention
    Grigorenko
    Enroth (No matter what others say, he played awesome against probably the best team in the league. He had absolutely no help defensively. Everyone blames the defense when Miller struggles like nobodies business and it’s all Enroth’s fault when he loses? lol Like I said too many Enroth haters on this site.)

      I think Enroth had a solid outing for sure, but it was just one… he definetely get’s an honourable mention
      I just think Vanek’s been off to a rough start… haven’t seen much from him

    • davidmuscalo

      It usually is Enroth’s fault when he loses, because he is often out of position where he can easily be scored on.

      • Caitlin Campbell

        and gives up pretty jouicy rebounds

  • Andrew

    The 3 stars were actually:

    1. Miller
    2. Enroth
    3. Al Cohol

    • Jes

      love that last one. should be first.

    • Caitlin Campbell

      Cohol? Cody Hodgson? He has 1 assist… and hasn’t shown up to play as of yet
