Miller keys Sabres win over New Jersey

Posted on January 28, 2010 by BSD Staff Reports

Ryan Miller was spectacular Wednesday night as the Buffalo Sabres returned home for the first time in two weeks, making 35 saves to lead a tired Sabres squad to a 2-1 shootout victory over the New Jersey Devils.

Jochen Hecht and Jason Pominville both beat Devils netminder in the shootout while Miller turned away Zack Parise and Jamie Langenbrunner to seal the much-needed two points.

Adam Mair scored the regulation goal for Buffalo, who saw Toni Lydman, Steve Montador and Clarke MacArthur get scratched by head coach Lindy Ruff.  Nathan Paetsch and Andrei Sekera were inserted into the lineup.

Tim Connolly was held pointless, ending a 16-game point scoring streak, the second longest in team history.

Buffalo is 8-0-3 in their last 11 home games and pulled within one point of the Devils for second place in the Eastern Conference.
