It's not wise to anger Charlie Sheen. The bombastic actor has a history of firing back, and he put Sabres defenseman Christian Ehrhoff in his sights Sunday.
Sheen wrote that after Pittsburgh scored the winner with 2:04 left, a goal that Miller couldn't see with Ehrhoff in front of him.
"I’m in front screening Millsie. He doesn’t have a chance on that, and it’s frustrating," Ehrhoff said. "I couldn’t really move. It went too quick. I wish it would have hit me, but obviously it went in."
Sheen knows Miller because the goaltender's wife, Noureen DeWulf, stars alongside the actor in "Anger Management" on FX. Sheen probably doesn't know Ehrhoff, but he will if he watches more Sabres games.
In an uneven start by the Buffalo blue-liners, Ehrhoff has been the steadiest performer. He leads the Sabres with a plus-6 rating, is tied for second with eight assists and ranks fifth with 10 points.
It’s essentially what the Sabres expected when they acquired him prior to last season and negotiated a 10-year, $40 million contract.
“My game hasn’t changed over the offseason,” he said. “Obviously, having the first year over, I know the guys now and that’s the only difference. Other than that, nothing.”
