As scheduled, Miller to start against Boston

The Sabres have announced that Ryan Miller was the first goaltender off the ice at the team's morning skate in Boston, meaning he will start in goal against the Bruins, as expected.

Miller ended a four-game losing streak in his last outing, a 6-5 overtime win against Winnipeg on Tuesday. He has watched from the bench in the three of the last four games, all victories by Jhonas Enroth.

So why am quoting the Sabres instead of giving you the news myself with a Boston dateline? Because I'm still stuck in the Buffalo airport.

I arrived at 5:55 a.m. for the 7 a.m. flight, which was then delayed until 10 a.m. because of a repair to the door. After boarding at 10:30, we sat on the plane for more than an hour waiting for "paperwork" to be completed.

Just before noon, the airline -- which rhymes with GetYou (nowhere) -- announced we would need to deplane because they needed another part for the same door. So now we sit in the terminal, with no anticipated departure time.

I hope to make it to Beantown by the 7 p.m. puck drop. If not, buy me a drink at a bar somewhere because that's where I'll be headed straight from the Buffalo airport.
