Scoreless midway through first, with goalies strong
Each goalie had to be strong in the game's first 10 minutes.

Jonathan Bernier was the first to show his stuff, robbing Nathan Gerbe on a breakaway. Bernier earned the start after Jonathan Quick played on Friday.

Then, it was Ryan Miller's turn. First, he denied Anze Kopitar's snap shot from the high slot. A few minutes later, he got his leg pad against the post to stop a wrap-around stuff attempt by Kevin Westgarth, who has drawn into the lineup in place of Trent Hunter.

The Sabres have the same exact lineup they used in Friday's 4-1 win against Anaheim.

With 11:01 left in first period, it is 0-0.
Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
