This is correct.
Also, although miller was fantastic and did stop a couple of sure-goal chances, most shots were perimeter shots and were not taken quickly enough to beat miller's lateral movement.
The sabres countered the habs tactically, and the habs seemed unable to respond with appropriate changes. However, the game was relatively tight with chances going both ways at different points in the game (with, admittedly, a slight advantage to the sabres).
And Kimogionta is right too, there were so many bad passes it was frustrating.
