Miller brothers do it at both ends of the ice
The Miller brothers made an impact at both ends of the ice on Wednesday.
The Miller brothers made an impact at both ends of the ice on Wednesday.

In Detroit, forwards Drew Miller scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period as the Red Wings beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 for their 18th consecutive victory at Joe Louis Arena. That game ended a few minutes before big brother Ryan completed his second shutout in three games by stopping 36 shots in the Buffalo Sabres' 6-0 victory against the Boston Bruins.

It's the first time since Oct. 10, 1973, that brothers accounted for a winning goal and a shutout on the same night.

Phil Esposito completed a hat trick with the go-ahead goal for Boston in a 6-4 season-opening victory for the Bruins at Vancouver. Down the West Coast in Los Angeles, brother Tony Esposito stopped all 25 shots he faced as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-0.

One player does not make your team. One player can help your team, but one player does not make your team. We're not a bare-bones organization.
