Miller stops 34 shots to lead Sabres past Leafs

TORONTO, Ontario (AP) -- Ryan Miller stopped 34 shots to lead the
Buffalo Sabres past the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Monday night.

Miller lost his shutout bid when Nazem Kadri scored on the power
play with 1:42 remaining, his second goal of the season.
Toronto's Joffrey Lupul appeared to tie it seconds later with
goalie Ben Scrivens on the bench, but the goal was disallowed.

With Scrivens on the bench and Toronto on a late power play,
Kadri was all alone to the side of Miller but couldn't get his
stick on the bouncing puck in the dying seconds.

Cody Hodgson and Jason Pominville had the goals for Buffalo.

Miller improved to 28-14-0 in his career against Toronto and
came in with a 2.44 goals-against average and .922 save
percentage. He has more wins (28) against Toronto than any other

Miller was also solid in goal for Buffalo after a 27-save
performance in the Sabres' 5-2 season-opening home win over the
Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night.

Toronto outshot Buffalo 13-5 in the first, but it was the Sabres
who had the period's lone goal as Hodgson opened the scoring at
8:51, deflecting Christian Ehrhoff's point shot past Scrivens
for his second goal.

The Leafs had a prime chance to tie it when the Sabres took
three straight minor penalties - giving the home team an
extended two-man advantage - but the closest they came to
scoring was captain Dion Phaneuf's slap shot going off the post.

Pominville put Buffalo ahead 2-0 at 4:51 of the second with his
first goal of the season. The Sabres captain - who had three
assists Sunday night against Philadelphia - took a nice setup
pass from Thomas Vanek and finished the play off by firing a
wrist shot through Scrivens' legs.

The assist was Vanek's sixth point of the season after
registering two goals and three assists against Philadelphia.
