BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller had plenty to get off his chest in speaking for the first time since being diagnosed with a concussion after being leveled by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic last weekend.
Speaking after he sat out Sabres practice on Monday, Miller isn't sure when he'll return. He says he has whiplash and is still experiencing soreness in his neck and post-concussion-like symptoms.
He doesn't buy Lucic's explanation that the Bruins' forward was playing the puck and couldn't avoid colliding with Miller in Buffalo's 6-2 loss at Boston on Saturday. Miller also expressed disappointment in the NHL for not disciplining Lucic.
And, finally, Miller believes his teammates do have his back after Sabres players were roundly criticized for failing to go after Lucic following the check.
