St. Louis Blues

Miller stopped 31 shots in the St. Louis Blues' 1-0 shootout victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Miller, who earned his 29th career shutout, made a skate save against Vincent Lecavalier and a glove save on Claude Giroux in the shootout. It was his first shutout in 14 games for St. Louis. Miller is 10-3-1 with a 2.01 goals-against average since being acquired from Buffalo on March 1.

Miller made 30 saves Saturday in a 4-1 win over Nashville.

It was the highest shot total he's faced since joining the Blues.

Miller made 23 saves and Patrik Berglund scored twice during St. Louis' four-goal, third-period rally and the Blues beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 on Sunday night.

Miller was playing in his first game since being acquired by St. Louis in a five-player deal with Buffalo on Friday. In addition to posting a 284-186-57 record in 10-plus seasons, all with the Sabres, Miller entered the game 6-0-0 with a shutout and a 1.15 goals-against average in his career against Phoenix.

The Buffalo Sabres traded Miller and captain Steve Ott to the St. Louis Blues on Friday night for goalie Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a 2015 first-round pick and a 2016 third-round pick.

Miller won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's best goalie in 2010, the year he was the Most Valuable Player of the Olympic tournament in Vancouver, and is Buffalo's franchise leader with 284 victories and 540 games. This season, he's 5-22-3 with a 2.72 goals-against average and .923 save percentage. He's 284-186-57 with a 2.60 GAA and .916 save percentage overall.

A little over a day after returning to Buffalo from the Sochi Games, and with his future uncertain, Miller stopped 36 shots and even contributed to the offense with two assists in a 3-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night in the NHL's first game after its Olympic break.

Before the game, general manager Tim Murray acknowledged he's shopping the goalie with the intention of dealing him before the league's trade deadline on March 5. Miller is on the block because he's in the final year of his contract, and Murray is unsure whether the 33-year-old is prepared to re-sign with a team that's rebuilding through youth.

Buffalo general manager Tim Murray says the club is shopping Miller with the intention of dealing him before the trade deadline on March 5.

Murray says he's received interest from more than two teams but less than 10 regarding Miller, but added it's too early to determine whether a deal can be made for the 11-year veteran.

Miller turned in another strong performance, stopping 28 shots in Buffalo's shootout win at Washington on Sunday.

Miller is 7-2-1 over his last 10 starts with an impressive 1.64 goals-against average and .950 save percentage.

Miller made 21 saves in Saturday's 2-1 win over New Jersey.

Miller has quickly turned things around after an awful start to the season. He's 5-1-1 with a 1.81 GAA in his last seven starts.

Ryan Miller made 49 saves to lead the Sabres to a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals in a six-round shootout on Sunday night.

Miller stood out as the Sabres were outshot 50-17. He stopped 12 shots from Alex Ovechkin before the shootout and then stopped him and five others in the tiebreaker.

Miller made 36 saves in a 2-1 shootout win Monday over Phoenix.

He's 4-1-0 with a 1.56 goals-against average and .952 save percentage since Dec. 10.
