I would have much rather watched a Ryan Miller shutout game on MSG so as to hear Rick call it, but you can't always get what you want. He played very well last night once again. He may not have had to make the stellar saves he had done against Carolina (except for a few shots by Phil Kessel) but he kept the Sabres in the game for the first forty minutes as they couldn't find the back of the net until Tim Kennedy scored. I wonder if he's ever going to score at home this year, yeesh.
It's very excited to have seen Hank score too! We were hoping to see his little dance he did like he did last year when he scored against St. Louis, but I guess it doesn't help that they weren't at home when he scored. We didn't even realize he had scored until they announced it. Good stuff though, and good for Hank!
For the record, I really REALLY like the Vanek-Kennedy-Grier line. It was weird to see the combo on Saturday in person but even my brother said that was probably the best line on Saturday once they started scoring. I like it. I don't care if that means Thomas is on the third line. Whatever works is perfectly fine with me.
