BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller is out indefinitely with a concussion after being leveled by a hit from Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic.
The Sabres revealed the nature of Miller's injury Sunday, while also announcing they had called up goalie Drew McIntyre from their AHL affiliate in Rochester. McIntyre is expected to serve as backup to Jhonas Enroth on Monday night at Montreal.
Miller was hurt about 14 minutes into the first period of a 6-2 loss at Boston on Saturday night when he left his crease to play the puck before being checked by Lucic, who received a minor penalty for charging.
Miller continued playing before being pulled after two periods. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff had said following the game that Miller had a sore neck.
