The Anaheim Ducks hosted the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night. The Sabres managed to pick up the Leap Day victory to truly become the Ducks' Eastern Conference counterpart. The two teams now have 64 points and 27 losses each. The Sabres won by a final score of 2-0.
The true star of the night was Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller, who stopped every one of the 43 shots on goal taken by the Ducks. Anaheim goalie Jonas Hiller did not fare as well on his end of the ice, saving just 22 of 24 shots.
The Sabres scored at 7:12 of the first period on a power play goal by Derek Roy, his 14th goal of the season. That would end up being the only offense Buffalo would need, but Brad Boyes added his fourth goal of the season at 8:16 in the second period for insurance.
