Sabres Beat Flyers-One Down, Three to Go [VIDEO]

Ryan Miller stopped all 33 shots, including 16 in the second period as the Buffalo Sabres beat the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0 in game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the teams. Angola’s Patrick Kaleta, lived the dream with a third period goal off a juicy rebound left by Philadelphia’s Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. 

 The Sabres did a phenomenal job of blocking shots and killed off several powerplays, including a two-man advantage in the second period.

“I wanted to keep it calm and realize that I had backside coverage,” Miller said.

 At one point in the first period the Flyers held the puck in the Sabres zone for over a minute after Paul Gaustad broke his stick on the faceoff. But the Sabres, and especially Gaustad battled hard blocking off passing lanes. Gaustad even blocked a shot without his stick to stop a scoring opportunity.

Patrick Kaleta played the hometown hero with the game winning goal.

“A lot of times it isn’t your big guys that get it done, it’s the other guys on the 5-on-5.” Ruff said about the goal. “I wasn’t even sure I was going to play him (Kaleta).”

Luckily he did. It was the perfect playoff road game and gives the Sabres Home Ice Advantage in the series. Game Two is Saturday at 5 pm in Philadelphia.
