Crosby on OLN Tonight
Ryan Miller had an impressive preseason for the Buffalo Sabres, as they went 6-2, with Miller finishing with 4 wins, a .945 save percentage and a 1.75 GAA. In the regular season, Miller has cooled off a bit, and is 2-1, with 3.33 GAA and .897% save percentage.
The other exciting rookie playing for the Sabres is Thomas Vanek, who finished with 5 goals and 3 assists in 6 preseason games. In the first three regular season games, Vanek has 2 assists.
For me, tonight's game is all about witnessing the future of the NHL. There will be three potential Calder candidates on the ice. (For me, the Calder battle is wide open this season, but, for me, the front runners are Sidney Crosby, Alexander Ovechkin, Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek, Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, Kari Lehtonen, and I guess I have to include surprise candidate Brandon Bochenski in the group)
I have to say I'm excited for the Pittsburgh Penguins lineup this year, and I would like to see Mario Lemieux put in a strong performance on national TV tonight.
