Ryan Miller Nets Second Star Honors

There hasn’t been much to celebrate about so far this season, but Ryan Miller has been one shining example for the Buffalo Sabres.  Be it his performance as he wishes to once

again represent Team USA in the Olympics as the starting goalie, or proving to 29 other teams that will be courting him, he has stood on his head time and time again, giving the hapless Sabres a chance to be in a fair number of games this year.

His most recent performance against the Washington Capitals has caught the National spotlight – as the NHL has bestowed upon him the honors of second star of the week.  In a game the Sabres appeared to be outgunned in, Ryan Miller stood tall, and not only stopped all twelve of Alex Ovechkin‘s shots keeping the NHL goal leader off the board, he turned aside all but one of the 50 shots thrown against him Sunday night.  Miller posted a 2-0-1 record last week, with a 1.55 goals against and a .961 saver percentage.

Patrick Sharp was listed as the National Hockey League’s first star, and the honors of third star were awarded to James Neal of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ryan Miller made 124 shots last week to earn the honors, as the Sabres beat the Phoenix Coyotes, Washington Capitals, and allowed the Toronto Maple Leafs to storm back and defeat him for his only loss.  The Buffalo Sabres earned points in all three contests.

The Buffalo Sabres are next in action tomorrow against the Winnipeg Jets.
