Miller has long list of 40-save performances during his career with Sabres

By John Vogl

During his 12 seasons in Buffalo, Ryan Miller has faced 17,587 shots. He's stopped 16,217. That's a lot of rubber hitting his pads, glove and mask.

The more he faces, the better he gets. Miller has made 40 or more saves 33 times in his career, and he's 23-7-3 when topping the magic number.

Not surprisingly, most of those shot-heavy performances have come during the Sabres' recent struggles. Of the 33 times Miller was forced to make at least 40 saves, 11 came during the 2013 calendar year.
