What a wild affair in Nashville, as the Sabres beat the Predators 3-2. Luke Adam, Zack Kassian and Tyler Ennis scored, but the real story will again be Miller getting flattened. This time, the team came to his aid like he owed them money, though Ryan tried to fight his own battle by punching whoever came near. Jordin Tootoo was the culprit, and though he was being gently touched by Ehrhoff at the time, he practically leaped into Miller’s chest like a linebacker making a tackle. Gaustad dove in to take care of business and it basically seemed like exactly what we should see when that happens.
Kassian’s goal was sweet, there was some hard work, but the team was severely outshot. Miller made some huge saves, before and after getting mauled. We all now wait to hear what Tootoo will get for a suspension, if any. He’s no boy scout though I don’t know how much of that would count for Shanny’s repeat offender status. Lindy Ruff was outraged after the game, and this might be the first time I would wish we could play Nashville again in a season.
