Video: Sabres' Miller steals a win from shot-happy Capitals

By John Vogl

Hockey is a team sport, but the Sabres were a one-man show Sunday night. Ryan Miller stopped 49 of 50 shots through 65 minutes of play, then blanked all six Capitals in the shootout to give Buffalo a 2-1 victory.

Miller improved his save percentage to .927 on a night when he was needed more than ever. The Capitals outshot the Sabres, 50-17, the biggest disparity for a Buffalo victory in team history. The 33-shot disadvantage topped the 31-chance margin during a 7-5 win over Boston on March 21, 1971, when the Bruins had a 56-25 edge.

Here's the performance:
