Miller Stones Ducks in 2-0 Sabres Win

Ryan Miller might of had his best performance of the season tonight in the Sabres 2-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks. Miller was phenomenal making 43 saves on the night earning his 4th shutout of the season. The win marks Miller 20th of the season and 7 straight season of at least 20 wins. The Sabres got on the board 7:12 into the 1st Period when Derek Roy collected a rebound off the endboards and beat Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller. The Sabres would make it 2-0 when Brad Boyes deflected a Christian Ehrhoff shot past Hiller shortly after the Sabres Power Play expired. The goal marked Boyes first since December 31st.

Newcomer Cody Hodgson had a strong game playing on a line with Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford. Hodgson played 16:04, a +1 Rating, and 4 shots on goal. Hodgson played a key role on the 2nd Sabres goal winning a race to the puck on a dump in which would help the Sabres convert a few seconds later.

The Sabres return to action tomorrow night when they visit the Shark Tank to take on Joe Thornton and the San Jose Sharks. Faceoff is a little after 10:30 PM, Pregame starts at 10:00.
