NEW YORK -- It will be Ryan Miller in goal tonight for the Sabres against Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers. The last time they met, of course, it resulted in a 1-0 shootout win for the Rangers on Feb. 1 in Buffalo.
Brad Boyes is not dressed for Buffalo but Lindy Ruff said in a pregame briefing that Boyes will certainly be ready for the team's West Coast trip. That's provided, of course, the Sabres find no takers for him at Monday's deadline.
Brandon Dubinsky is still in the Rangers' lineup. He's widely believed to be going to Columbus as part of a Rick Nash deal. The Rangers seemed to open up more cap room for that today when they dumped Wojtek Wolski on Florida.
The multi-year renovation of MSG is off to a great start. The new Madison Concourse is simply fabulous, with plenty of room, great food options and views of Manhattan through huge windows that didn't exist in the building's first 43 years.
