BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Ryan Miller made 32 saves for his second shutout of the playoffs and the Buffalo Sabres beat the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 on Wednesday night to even the first-round playoff series 2-2.

Jason Pominville scored at 9:38 of the first period to help the Sabres rebound from two straight losses.

It was Miller's third career playoff shutout and second of the Eastern Conference series after he stopped 35 shots in Buffalo's 1-0 victory in Game 1.

Miller's best stops came in the final 9 minutes. First, there was his glove save in stopping Danny Briere, who was set up alone in front. A few minutes later, Miller reached back with his stick to prevent Mike Richards from slipping a shot into an open left side.

Flyers goalie Brian Boucher made 28 saves.

Game 5 is Friday night in Philadelphia.
