The Buffalo Sabres might be without their No. 1 goaltender for a bit.
The team announced Miller suffered a concussion after being hit by Milan Lucic during the Sabres' 6-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Saturday. Miller was removed from the game after the second period.
On Sunday, Sabres general manager Darcy Regier told The Buffalo News that he hopes Lucic is suspended for the hit.

"The last thing we need to do in the NHL is to be losing our stars to concussions on plays like this."
Miller, who was highly critical of Lucic after the game, will be replaced in the lineup by Drew MacIntyre after the latter was recalled by AHL Rochester. MacIntyre will back up Jhonas Enroth on Monday night, when the Sabres visit Montreal.
In 11 appearances this season, Miller is 5-6-0 with a 2.86 goals-against average and .909 save percentage.
