Maybe it's just been too long since I've watched hockey, but where has this "attack the puck even if the goalie has it covered and climb all over him" attitude come from? I understand crashing the net and all, but a few of these disallowed goals have been guys going straight into Miller. Goalie has the puck covered, doesn't matter. Chop at it! Wildly! Ref blew the whistle like a minute ago. Who cares! Even Lupul's, while disallowed for the punch, pretty much pushed Miller in the goal in the process.
I mean, you didn't see Pominville directly on top of Scrivens when he scored. Even Hodgson, for all his work around the net the last two games, barely so much as touched the goalie.
Maybe I just have my blinders on or don't watch enough games other than the Sabres. Does this happen every game for other teams? Seems like other teams take a ton of liberties with Miller and around our net in general... and wonder why we have four disallowed goals in two games. Getting to the point where other teams want so badly to get in the Sabres heads that their shenanigans around Miller are costing them goals/games. Was so glad when Kaleta unloaded on Kessel's back (tee hee).
