Too many good scoring opportunities have caused Ryan Miller to fall on tough times
Ryan Miller (Buffalo Sabres) is the cold goaltender this week, and it’s not all his fault. The Buffalo defense allows way too many scoring opportunities for any goaltender to be successful. Miller is the clear No. 1 in Buffalo, but that blessing is a curse right now.
He has recorded a win in his last four starts, and last week he had a 3.32 goals-against average. The guy is just getting peppered with shots, many of which are high quality. This week alone, Miller has faced 131 shots. Only four goaltenders in the NHL faced over 100 shots last week.
Until things turn around in Buffalo, Miller could be falling on even tougher times.
