Miller pulled, Sabres eliminated from playoff contention

Apr 19, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller was ventilated for four goals on 14 shots against the New York Rangers on Friday night, and he was given a rather tough time from the hometown crowd.

He was pulled after the Rangers’ fourth goal, which came at 1:13 of the second period. Jhonas Enroth came off the bench to take over. Enroth surrendered a goal 27 seconds after the Rangers’ fourth goal, as New York built up a 6-0 lead. The two teams exchanged a total of seven goals in the middle frame.

Update: The Sabres lost the game by a final score of 8-4, and are now eliminated from playoff contention.

    3 goals in the last minute of the 1st was crazy

    I can name about 29 teams who would love the chance to get their hands on the Olympic hero from 3 years ago.

    Personally, i love Howard in net, but i’d trade for Miller in a heartbeat

      No one would have guessed in 2010 that both goalies from the gold medal game would be available for trade.

      There are AT LEAST six or seven goalies that I would without a doubt rank over Miller. So theres not 29 teams that would love to have him. He will find a new home pretty easy if the Sabers do trade him, but lets not over state how good he is because of something he did a few years ago. Miller is, and has always been, a decent but not great goalie.

        As a Rangers fan I put Miller right up there with Lundqvist…

    Which means the FlyBoyz are out too; and may try a trade for Miller actually.

      No way would they cut ties with one aging, overpriced goalie just to bring in a more expensive one. Just doesn’t make sense.

    Should have moved him at the deadline. Too late 4 a Roy moment because we can’t move him now.

    Miller should play for a real team with fans that aren’t fat drunken idiots.
