Heat warning in effect

Miller has been one of Sabres' few highlights

"Ø"Ø ABOUT THE SABRES

The Sabres come to Winnipeg for the New Year's Eve game with a good feeling. They were outshot 50-17 by the Washington Capitals on Sunday night but rode the excellent goaltending of Ryan Miller (49 saves) and won the game in a six-round shootout, 2-1.

Miller has been one of the few highlights for a poor Sabres team this season. Though 10-17-1, he's managed a .927 save percentage and a 2.69 goals-against average.

Buffalo, 4-9-1 vs. the Western Conference this season, is 2-0-1 in its last three games and 4-1-1 in the last six.

That span includes a Dec. 17 win over the Jets, 4-2, which was followed by a victory over the Boston Bruins.

Though pointless on Sunday, LW Matt Moulson is the Sabres' leading scorer this season with 26 points.
