Sabres win, 1-0, behind Miller's 33 stops
The Buffalo Sabres have scored a monumental 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal round here at Wells Fargo Center.

Leading the way was the best player on the ice, goalie Ryan Miller, who turned aside 33 shots. Miller made 16 saves in the second period.

The Sabres finally broke the ice 5:56 into the third when Patrick Kaleta slammed home a rebound while charging down the slot and avoiding Flyers defender Danny Syvret to retrieve the puck. Marc-Andre Gragnani took the initial shot from the top of the left circle that Flyers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky stopped but couldn't control.

The rebound hit the tape of an alert Kaleta, who connecting for his first goal in 17 games. It was the second of his career in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
