I am just hoping that this is "regular" Ryan Miller. Before last season he never had a save percentage above a .918, he had a .911, .906 and then a .918, then he pulled out the .929 last year. I am hoping that the .918 and below is the Ryan Miller we see from here on out and that last year was just a fluke year. It seems plausible that this could happen, and given his start, it seems like this year could be the start of it. Also, Buffalo's roster sports one of, if not the, weakest D corps in the NHL. That is an awful lot of weight for Miller to carry. There is always hoping I hate the Sabres as much as I hate the Leafs

Jason Spezza named tonights 1st star on nhl.com. Good for him. They took him over Carey Price (shutout/34 saves) and Eric Staal with 4 assists

Luckily we stormed back and took momentum but the reality is a break couldn't/shouldn't hurt him. Vancouver's actually not that bad of a matchup for Leclaire either.
For Elliott's sake, give him a break. This way, he exits on a high note, and his mojo isn't compromised.

If Clouston waits until he falters before putting in Leclaire, we'll just be jumping right back on the carousel.

I just watched the game on PVR, and I am blown away by our power play. It seems like a short time ago we were complaining that other teams were cheating on our defense as they didn't respect their point shots. Karlsson and Gonchar are amazing. I wish I could figure out how Karlsson gets such a canon of a shot out of that skinny little frame of his. And they are both pretty accurate to boot.

I hope CC keeps Spezza and Kovalev together for a while. Kovalev seems like a completely different player, and I think they could really develop something special together (hockeywise, of course).

for the first time ever under cc, everyone is playing where they should be and in roles they are comfortable in.
I wonder if Tim Murray stepped in finally.

I know it was just the thrashers, but what a great game top to bottom.

The umbrella with two good point shooters is our new PP system. That's why Ottawa's become so lethal on the PP.

Movement --> Open Lanes --> Scoring Chances

Keys to the PP for Ottawa.

Like at every level, from a rec league on up, it takes time for teams to gel. If you throw 5 guys out there that have never played together before, it's going to be ugly.

We have too many weapons for our PP to struggle for too long.

Ya when i turned the TV on for tjhe game, the Thrashers were going on the PP. Few seconds later they scored and Elliott didn't seem ready to play. I was like : Fuhr said easy win, and it begins like this... uh-oh

But the Sens elevated their play like mad and controlled the rest of the period and period 2 as well, Elliott didn't have to make very hard saves. So he had time to get confortable and also less pressure with a 4-1 and 5-1 lead

But all in all, it was perfect : the Sens got an easy win and Elliott didn't needed to be at his best.

Am I the only one who thought Alfie looked a bit off? He wasn't as hard on the puck as usual.

Why Tim Murray would be involved with coaching?
