The biggest problem the Buffalo Sabres have had this season is scoring goals. They are the only team in the National Hockey League to average fewer than two goals per game, averaging only 1.73 per game. The Sabres have scored only 83 goals this season, the only team to score fewer than 100 or more goals. Despite scoring three or more goals in each of the past four games, those games have all ended in defeat for Buffalo

The Sabres have relied on Ryan Miller to bail them out in every game, but last night wasn't one of his better efforts. 

"You have to be ready for all types of situations and deal with them as they come," said Miller. 

How else can other teams expect to beat Ryan Miller when he stands on his head to make save after save?

"This was a game where the puck had eyes," said Coach Ted Nolan. 

Miller has been stellar, despite constant rumors swirling about him being traded. The team has failed to back up his goaltending on most nights, scoring the fewest goals in the NHL

"Millsy has been playing great for us all year," said Drew Stafford.

With thirty-four games remaining in the 2013-2014 season, the Sabres hopefully can muster more offense to coincide with the quality goaltending of Ryan Miller.
