Numerology: Miller's Buffalo career

By Mike Harrington

How strange it is to look at a player profile page of Ryan Miller, like the one on Yahoo!, and see the Blue note logo and the notation of "St. Louis".

Starting Sunday night in Phoenix, when you assume Miller will make his Blues debut by starting against the Coyotes, the 33-year-old will start a new life and career chapter. And, of course, a new statistical one too.

So, for the record, here are breakdowns of Miller's final numbers in Buffalo. We're listing W-L-OTL, GAA and save percentage:

Overall: 284-186-56 (plus one tie), 2.60, .916
Home: 158-89-28, 2.57, .914
Road: 126-97-28, 2.62, .918
Playoffs: 25-22, 2.46, .917

In the 284 wins: 1.88, .938, 27 shutouts
In the 242 losses: 3.47, .889

October: 39-32-5, 2.58. .916
November: 31-24-4, 2.67, .913
December: 46-29-8, 2.57, .916
January: 54-31-10, 2.39. .922
February: 43-32-13, 2.61, .916
March: 50-28-15, 2.84, .906
April: 21-10-1, 2.43, .923 (*-regular season only)
