Happy Monday everyone! In the last five games the Buffalo Sabres have one win and four losses, and it is hard to believe that the only win has come against one of the hottest teams in the NHL, the Columbus Blue Jackets. The end of January won’t be any easier for the Sabres though, as they are set to face the Penguins, Capitals, and Coyotes – 2 out of the 3 being road games (PIT, PHX).
I won’t bombard you with a plethora of Miller trade rumor articles this morning, but if you get bored today at work or your day off, then just for fun you should Google – Ryan Miller trade rumors, you could read articles for days!

Matt Ellis started the scoring off in Columbus on Saturday night, and it seems to have caught Coach Ted Nolan‘s attention. Ellis has 5 points in 18 games played this season, and after that backhand goal, it seems as if he will be getting more time with the NHL club. [Olean Times Herald]
