Crosby and Miller set for quick rematch

Crosby and Miller set for quick rematch
Sidney Crosby became a (bigger) Canadian hero by scoring the gold medal-winning goal against Ryan Miller and Team USA Sunday at Canada Hockey Place. Miller won't have to wait long for a chance to exact at least a small measure of revenge.

Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins resume their NHL season at Mellon Arena Tuesday night -- and the guests are none other than Miller and the Buffalo Sabres.

Crosby started and ended February with big games against Miller. On Feb. 1, he scored 3 goals as the Penguins rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Sabres in their last visit to Pittsburgh. Crosby scored three times in the second period after the Sabres had taken a 3-1 lead.

In fact, Crosby has had good success against Miller during his career. He's scored six times against the Buffalo goaltender in the past two seasons and seven overall -- as well as getting a pair of shootout winners against him, including one in the 2008 Winter Classic.

The Sabres' second game back after the break won't be any easier -- they return to Buffalo for a Wednesday meeting with Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals. It will be Ovechkin's first NHL game after his disappointing showing in Vancouver.
