Watch Ryan Miller’s amazing goal-line stick save

Jan 20, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

In a year filled with injuries, lackluster play and swirling trade rumors, highlights have been few and far between for Buffalo Sabres netminder Ryan Miller.

But on Thursday night, he provided a pretty good one.

Just 3:30 into an eventual 4-1 loss to Winnipeg, Miller robbed Jets forward Tanner Glass of what appeared to be a sure goal:

Those are Jets forwards Chris Thorburn and Jim Slater with the premature celebrations — though in their defense, that’s as close as a puck gets to going in…without actually going in.

As great as the save was, it was ultimately overshadowed by another discouraging Buffalo loss. The Sabres have now lost all four games thus far on their seven-game trip and dropped 11 in a row away from home.

“We’re going through a really tough stretch right now,” Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers told “I keep saying the same thing, but it’s true. When things are going this bad, it gets tougher every day to get out of it.”

    Owner Terry Pegula get your head out of your ass & fire both the general manager & coach!

    Pegula is another Galissano who has lots of money & doesn’t have a clue about hockey! You made Regiere spend millions on second rated players who do not produce!

    Grow some balls & start cleaning house!

    Why Lindy is untouchable is crazy. He has had a couple of runs toward the cup with the franchise. Peter L was axed by Carolina after winning the cup. Bring back Jim Schoenfeld to coach the team. He was like better by the fans in Buffalo.

    You are right Ralph Wilson does suck! He doesn’t know if he is in K-Mart or One Bills Drive!

    Must be a divided locker room there. It started when Miller was run into. You can’t championships by free agency. Buffalo needs a tougher team and not a finese team.

    I agree with you! Our team is to small & not tough enough. Kaleta did the smart thing by going to his knees & covering up in the Chicago game cause he would have gotten a whoopin!

    You would think the big mamaluke Myers could fight but a big wussss instead!

    On power play they do more passing than Tom Brady & Aaron Rogers & waist time off clock & miss the net when they shoot!

    The guy who compared Pegula to Golisano is a moron. Golisano ran the team like a business. He wanted profits. He didn’t care about product, just profit. Pegula cares about nothing but winning. He doesnt know anything about hockey, true, but how many owners do? Most throw money at an expert to do that for him. I totally agree Ruff must go. There is plenty of talent on that team and Ruff clearly has no one on board with him except pominville and vanek. Miller is a top 3 goalie in the world, and showed it last night yet we still lost 4-1. There is no intensity, the guy can’t push the right buttons. I’m not saying Ruff is bad, we just need a fresh start. Too many players are TOO comfortable around Lindy and his system. As for Regier, I think he’s stays. He’s drafted guys like Myers, Roy, Vanek, Pominville, Miller etc. when given money he’s brought in great talent. Drury, Briere, these guys were brought in before Golisano stripped Regier of spending. Now that he has it back he signed top 5 defenseman Errhoff, who now looks mediocre. Coaching. Leino we overplayed for sure, but are all his struggles his lack of talent? I don’t think so. Coaching.

    I heard a rumor that Roy might go to Montreal?
