Sabres top Sharks 4-2 a few hours after trading Miller, Ott

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Jhonas Enroth made 36 saves as the Buffalo Sabres beat the San Jose Sharks 4-2 on Friday night, a few hours after they traded goalie Ryan Miller and captain Steve Ott.

Cody Hodgson, Brian Flynn, Matt Moulson and Tyler Myers scored for Buffalo, while Enroth played well in the absence of Miller, who was dealt to St. Louis along with Ott before warmups.

Miller was set to start his 541st career game for the Sabres, but was pulled from the lineup. Buffalo general manager Tim Murray used the two veterans in his first major trade, acquiring Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a first-round pick in 2015 and a third-rounder in 2016 from the Blues.

James Sheppard and Patrick Marleau scored for San Jose.

The win gave Buffalo three straight wins for the first time since last April.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
