Miller a stronger player after cleaning up and sitting out

Via: Olean Times Herald

‘Miller will likely make his ninth straight start (50th overall) and 51stappearance tonight against the New York Rangers at HSBC Arena. The 28-year-old was on the 14th of 34 consecutive starts at this time last season. That probably won’t happen again with Patrick Lalime in the mix. The Sabres signed the veteran backup to spell Miller occasionally, something he’s already done 12 times, including 10 starts. Jocelyn Thibault, last year’s No. 2 goalie, made seven starts the entire season, and only one after Jan. 22, the season finale.’
