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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
