Sweet, Sweet Victory.

My favorite hippie goaltender earned his first shutout of the season tonight! And that means...



Guess who's back? Back again. Shady's Miller's back. Tell a friend...
(Not like he was really gone, everyone has an off night. But I had to fit in an Eminem reference somewhere.)

Yes yes yes. Our boys sure turned it around tonight. I'm proud of them. They played as a team and they all worked for that win. I really enjoyed all the shot blocking and seeing Roy and Pominville scoring tonight. What a great play by Paille and Kaleta for that goal too. It's great seeing those type of players putting up points. And of course Thomas Vanek was on fire tonight. Scoring goals and being defensively responsible. I liked his backchecking effort tonight.

Kudos to Lindy Ruff and the coaching staff for straightening the kids out. I'm glad they took the meeting and the practice to heart and they really did work for that win. They played great in the first and kind of hung back in the second, but Miller was right there stopping the shots and keeping his team in the game.

The power play still needs work. Maybe if/when Connolly gets more back into stride he can help improve it. Monday night will be a test for them, for sure. The Devils can be a tough team to beat, and the Sabres struggle against them. Let's see how they'll do...

I used the same Eminem reference earlier. :P But I was talking about dear Timmy.

Monday is going to be doublekill - the game is on Versus AND the Sabres are playing the Devils? Sounds like a fun, fun night.

Gotta love Eminem!

Yeah, that's going to be a real blast! Hopefully the Sabres make it worth while.

AHAHAHAHA I started singing that in reference to Connolly. And Miller totally had Eminem on his playlist yesterday...

Glad to see Millsie back on top(that's what she said)... what a difference a shutout can make, eh?

Timmah had a few real nice scoring chances and drew a couple penalties which was nice to see. An assist, +1 and 19:04 TOI is not too shabby for his first game back. Hope he can build on that and not stub his toe or something.

Ryan knows what's up.

Haha tell me about it. Everytime he trips or something I always hold my breath.
