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

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
