SABRES NOTEBOOK: Miller pulled for just second time

(Continued)

BUFFALO —

According to the Sabres, NHL officials in Toronto were reviewing the play for a long period of time to see if the puck had already crossed the line, but that determination couldn’t be made.

A pair of Sabres have already been named to Olympic rosters, but more could be announced today as four more countries finalize their rosters.

Henrik Tallinder (Sweden) and Andrej Sekera (Slovakia) are already headed for the 2010 games in Vancouver while Ruff will be on the Team Canada coaching staff.

It’s likely that Jochen Hecht will join the growing list when Germany announces its roster today. Also, Finland will unveil its lineup as will Team Canada.

The Americans will announce their team on New Year’s Day with Miller a virtual shoo-in to be included.

The Sabres’ special teams made major contributions to the win, as the penalty killing unit continues to climb the charts, and keeping the net clean in two man-advantage situations on Tuesday should only help. Buffalo entered the game ranked No. 6 in the league by killing more than 84 percent of those situations.

Likewise, the power play scored what proved to be the game-winning goal as Jason Pominville’s third-period marker came with Craig Adams serving two minutes for boarding.
