Goal Line Report

Miller, Sabres Struggling

From good friend of the blog James Murphy at NHL.com:

“The big part of it is if you let things start to creep into your head, get uneasy and start to lose confidence as a team. That’s exactly the wrong way to think. You have to believe that what you’re doing is the right thing. You have to trust you have a good system in place.”

Miller has allowed 15 goals during his five-game skid, with a 4.07 goals-against average and .874 save percentage. He still has very solid stats overall, with a 2.15 GAA and .931 save percentage. Miller thinks that he and his teammates just need to roll with the punches and realize that sometimes it’s not as good as it seems and other times it’s not as bad.

“We’ve had some games this year where we haven’t been very good and we’ve won,” Miller said. “And we’ve had a few games in this stretch even where I thought we’ve been really good and haven’t got rewarded for some of our play.”
