Miller records shutout for Amerks

Miller stars for Amerks

October 18, 2003) — Goalie Ryan Miller, reassigned by the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday, did everything expected of him in his Rochester Americans’ debut Friday night.

They nearly needed him to do even more. Namely, score.

But Miller did enough by just stopping all 27 shots he faced, and Paul Gaustad became the offensive hero with a short-handed goal early in the third period as the Amerks defeated the Toronto Roadrunners 1-0.


Miller will probably get the start again tonight at Syracuse. The Amerks are missing a good chunk of their offense with Botterill, Taylor and Pittis up with the Sabres, and Roy out with a concussion.

Here's hoping he tosses three or four more on top of that one. It really baked my cake that Miller got kicked down the road because of the numbers game. Call him immature for his reactions, but it's nice to know that he cares about winning, losing and being the best he can.

I wonder about some of the others that dot the Sabres roster.

Miller and the Amerks were defeated 2-0 by the Crunch. Former Sabre prospect Brad Moran got the game winner on a short-handed goal. Newly signed Nathan Paetsch was the goat. Pascal Leclaire stoned the Amerks, stopping 39 shots.

Not that Amerks goalie Ryan Miller was surprised by seeing a 0 on his side of the scoreboard. He has played 12 periods (six with the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, six with the Amerks) and his team has scored one goal (the Amerks’ 1-0 shutout win Friday over Toronto).

Perhaps the Amerks offensive woes have led to an intensified effort to sign Kriukov.

The Amerks offense is struggling because they are missing their 4 best offensive forwards:

Botterill, Taylor, and Pittis are in Buffalo
Roy is out with a concussion

Adding Kriukov would be nice, especially with the Amerks so short up the middle that they signed Geoff Peters, Andrew's older, but smaller brother, to a 10 day PTO contract.

And while Miller's shutout on Friday sounded impressive, he actually had a lot less work than Noronen did against the Flames.

That has to be one of the easiest 25+ save shutouts that Miller will ever get.

And I'd be worried about the future of the Oilers. That Toronto team was small, soft, and didn't make up for it offensively.

And I barely even noticed Rita out there.
