from Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News,
We won’t be at this for even two weeks if Miller gives up too many soft goals. Sure, it’s only one game, one bad goal. It’s a team game, as Miller is always quick to remind us, and the Sabres are the superior team. They’ve been a terrific road team in the playoffs under Lindy Ruff and could ease everyone’s angst by winning two on the Island.
But it’s 1-1 now, and more of a series than most experts imagined. And whether Miller likes it or not, the goalie battle is a big issue. Goaltending is a huge factor in a Stanley Cup series and always will be. Many a Cup dream has gone up in smoke because one goalie caught fire in the playoffs, or because a favorite’s netminder wasn’t quite on his game.
