Sabres Shut Out of Olympic Highlights Tonight

The video montage that honors Team USA most valuable player Ryan Miller before the Buffalo Sabres game tonight in HSBC Arena will be missing one thing: Highlights of his play during the Vancouver Olympics.

A Sabres spokesman said NBC owns all Olympic rights and the team is prohibited from airing any of the highlights of Miller's play during the six-games he played in Vancouver.

CBS late-night host David Letterman had some fun at NBC's expense Tuesday night when men's figure skating champion Evan Lysacek appeared. Letterman's show -- which also is prohibited from carrying Olympic footage -- used simple drawings of stick figures to depict Lysacek's performance in the Olympics.
