Ryan Miller's inability to hold onto a shutout is awful.....

Fixed.

Sabres can't beat the Sens in the regular season. Sabres have had little trouble beating them in the playoffs.

Wasn't his nickname the 'Shutout King' back in College Hockey? Ironic, no?

Who cares? Shutouts are nice, but what matters most with goalies is an ability to make the big save when it really matters the most. Miller's one of the game's best when it comes to making that big save in the final five minutes with his team leading by a goal.

well as history shows, the sens usually dominate sabres reg. season and always choke come playoff time. So maybe we want them to finish 8th

This thread is pretty much asking "Why does Ryan Miller let in goals?"

Yeah he should be ashamed for only saving 34 out of 35 shots. Buffalo should start shopping him ASAP.

There's a difference between preserving the lead in the final minutes of a 1 goal game or trying to preserve a shutout when the team is ahead by more than 1. Miller gets hung out to dry alot in the final minutes of these near shutout games sometimes for whatever reason. Both of the last 2 shutout spoilers happened when the other team was shorthanded. If it was a 1 goal game I would hope the Sabres would have clamped down in the final minutes and played a little better defense. Besides Buffalo is leading the league in winning one goal games this year, at least according to the TSN announcers who kept bringing this stat up last night.

I'm just quoting this because, clearly, the poster above me didn't read this entire post.

Brent Johnson is horrible to just keep a lead or keep a 0-0 game nonetheless

This is causing havoc in my pool...I would be number 1 if he held on to at least one of those shutouts

Man do I wish people would stop saying this, I'd really rather not let karma come into play at all come playoff time.


Anyways, as some poster said about him being called the shutout king in college it's true, he set the record for most career shutouts as a sophmore. The only difference between now and then is Ron Mason coached teams were defense first and he wasn't facing nearly the same quality shots at the end of a game as he is now when trying to preserve the shutout.

Little trouble? You're talking about the series of 1-goal games and OTs, right?

Luongo has also had some trouble preserving shut-outs this season. I'm not exactly sure how many he's lost in the final 5:00 or so, but it has to be a few. Worst thing is, it tends to be a stupid play by one of our defensemen that does him in. Or a dumb bounce off like three shin-pads. But like everyone is saying, wins are wins, and Luongo is top 2 in the league in that category.
