A fiasco like the Buffalo Sabres' 8-3 loss Saturday in Pittsburgh is simply, as coach Lindy Ruff said Monday, "one of those games you dump in the trash can and move on."

Or is it?

Goaltender Ryan Miller, who gave up five goals and was actually pulled twice in one of the worst performances of his career, had a different approach. In advance of tonight's game against the Ottawa Senators in Scotiabank Place, Miller did plenty of extra work in practice Monday in First Niagara Center.
