Shut Out and Shoot Out - Rangers beat Buffalo

Ryan Miller shut out the Rangers Wednesday night in Buffalo.

And lost.

The Rangers - looking to bounce back from a tough shoot out loss Tuesday to the hated Devils - the Rangers stormed into Buffalo - took the ice aginst the Sabres....

And were held scoreless by Sabre goalie Ryan Miller.

Thank goodness we have Henrik Lundqvuist. The King faced more shots that Miller - but kept the Rangers deadlocked at zero through 60 minutes of regulation and and extra 5 minutes of OT.

So - for the second time in as many nights - it came down to the shootout. Luckily this time the Devil's Kovalchuk was nowhere to be seen.

And so - when Gaborik scored in round 1 the Rangers looked good. But Mitchell and Richards failed to light the buzzer and when Pominville scored in round three - we were deadlocked once again.

Hank kept stopping the Sabres. Stepan could not convert in round four. But finally - in round 5 - it was Captain Callahan with a 20 foot wrist shot that finally ended to contest.

Tough loss for a resurgent Ryan Miller - who let up zero goals in regulation and OT and still could not out-duel Henrik.

This time the shootout went our way. So in the back-to-back games the Rangers had 2 shootouts, one shut out, and 3 points. Next it's 3 days off followed by a rematch of the Winter Classic - the Flyers at MSG on Superbowl Sunday.

And oh yeah - Dave Puck and Pucks Junior will be there!
