OTTAWA -- If the Sabres beat New Jersey in regulation Sunday, they earn the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. A loss or overtime win puts them in the three hole behind the Devils.
Patrick Lalime had been scheduled to start in goal for the season finale, and coach Lindy Ruff said that won't change.
"No, we’re not going to change anything," Ruff said tonight after watching Miller make 26 saves in the 5-2 win over Ottawa. "We already put our schedule in place. I think we saw with the rest we got a real good effort out of Ryan. It’s important, I think, that we stick to our schedule."
