All Lindy Ruff

from Kevin Allen of USA TODAY,

Question: Considering that the Sabres missed the playoffs last season primarily because goaltender Ryan Miller was injured for a lengthy period, can we assume that having Miller healthy and performing at an elite level is key to the Sabres leading the Northeast?

Ruff: He has played very well, but I think the team has played very well in front of him. He can play aggressively in certain situations because of the confidence he has that he has protection around him. For us, it’s been a combination. We have played more solid defensively, and when we do break down, he has made key saves at the right time. That has given our team confidence.
