‘And still, only a stellar game by Sabres’ goalie Ryan Miller, who stopped 24 of 28 shots, kept this one from turning into a laugher before the halfway point. Why? Because Daniel Briere and J.P. Dumont were held without a shot, and their line mate, Jason Pominville, had just one. Because Maxim Afinogenov also managed a single shot, and that wasn’t until the third period. Because the power play was 0-for-5. Because the penalty killers could not keep the ‘Canes off the net in the waning minutes of the third period.’
