Ruff Ready To Ramp Up Miller

Words from Lindy Ruff this morning, via WGR-550, regarding scrapping his goalie rotation to give Ryan Miller the vast majority of the work:

“I haven’t got a set rotation now. My main focus has been to have both goaltenders contribute. I really want to get Ryan going. If he’s feeling comfortable, playing well and not tired, I’m going to try to play him a little more and see if that helps him. Obviously Jhonas (Enroth), before last game, went through a real tough stretch too. It was good to see that both guys can help us put points on the board. Really my main focus, and I know we’ve got a lot of hockey coming up here, would be to try to get Ryan on a run and let him run with it.”

Good on Ruff for doing this.  It’s hard to picture the Sabres having a chance to be any kind of threat in the East without a healthy and productive Ryan Miller in net.  The Michigan native this season is 10-10-2 with a 3.05 GAA and a .900 save percentage.
