As a goalie, Miller tries to get in the way of pucks. Was he good at getting out of the way of paintballs?
"I was decent. [Drew] Stafford and I had a little miscommunication. He was waving me out to help him and I stepped out and got smoked by Adam Mair and maybe Derek Roy too. [Daniel] Paille made a dash for it and I got him pretty good. [Nathan] Paetsch and [Derek] Roy tried to make a dash on me and Paetscher got the worst of that one."
Sabres oft-(tim)jured center Tim Connolly will miss 3-6 weeks with what Sabre doctors are calling "hurt feelings." When asked to elaborate, Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was blunt.
"We were paintballing, and Tim took one right on the left bicep. The shot came from someone who was on his own squad, so he was upset. The swelling is minimal, the paintball gun we were using was the equivalent of a pop gun, and the bruise on Tim's arm is about the size of a quarter. We'll evaluate it week-to-week"
