BUFFALO, N. James Rodriguez Jersey .Y. -- During a season in which very little as gone right for Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres, the goalie prefers hedging his bets on when -- or even whether -- hell catch Dominik Hasek in the franchise record book. And it makes no difference that Millers 234 career wins have him only one away from breaking The Dominators mark, or that it could happen as early as Saturday, when the Sabres travel to play the New York Islanders. "Just hoping to get it," he said. "One game at a time." For a player who two years ago was at the peak of his game after winning the Vezina Trophy and leading the U.S. to win a silver-medal at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Miller has good reason to be cautious. By many measures, this has been the seven-year veterans most confidence-testing season, playing on a high-priced team thats been one of the NHLs biggest flops. And much like the team in front of him, Miller hasnt been immune from the troubles, which have ranged from injuries -- he missed nine games with a concussion/whiplash -- criticism or been the target of trade talk, which Miller insists hes not going anywhere. So when it comes to breaking Haseks record, the thought might not be the furthest thing on Millers mind, but its not exactly a hot topic of discussion. "Theres not a lot of hype or fanfare about it right now just because of where were at," Miller said. "I feel like its a nice accomplishment, something to look back on. But I understand why right now it feels like its not quite as exciting or intriguing." Miller and the Sabres have been relegated to mostly afterthoughts as a result of a two-plus-month swoon. At 21-24-6, they began Friday sitting 12th in the Eastern Conference, 10 points out of playoff contention. Not all of the fault lies on Miller, who has a 13-15-3 record. The Sabres offence is anemic, having produced three or more goals just four times in its past 19 games. And then theres a rash of injuries which has led to every regular, except captain Jason Pominville, to miss at least one game. The turning point of the Sabres season, not coincidently, centred on Miller during a 6-2 loss at Boston on Nov. 12, when the goalie was bowled over by Bruins forward Milan Lucic. It was a play that led to Millers concussion and raised questions about his teammates for failing to deliver payback against Lucic for running their star. The Sabres have gone 11-19-6 since, during a stretch in which they set a franchise low by losing 12 straight in regulation on the road. Miller missed nine games, and Sabres owner Terry Pegula has suggested his goalie might have rushed back too soon. Last month, Miller acknowledged he was struggling to find his confidence, saying, "Its frustrating as hell sometimes." Its not been until the past two weeks when Millers finally shown signs of regaining his form. Hes gone 2-0-1 while allowing two goals in his past three starts, including a 1-0 shootout loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. "I feel like Ive got myself in a better place mentally and physically," Miller said. "My game is really close to where I want it. Im just trying to keep it there and hold it there." Millers teammates are seeing a difference. Forward Ville Leino smiled when asked about how he and Miller playfully wrestled on the ice during practice Thursday. "Hes more relaxed. Sometimes you need to have fun," Ville said. "Hes playing better. Hes more excited. You can see it." Miller isnt counting himself or the Sabres out. And who knows, maybe breaking Haseks record could prove to be something meaningful in a season thats so far been mostly forgettable. "Its something that can hopefully turn the tide, where itll be just one highlight from a good season," Miller said. "Everybodys looking for something hopeful." NOTES: Miller acknowledges hes had the benefit of padding his victory total over Hasek as a result of the NHL introducing the shootout in 2005-06. Millers record is 234-141-47, with 32 wins coming in the shootout. Hasek went 234-170-70 in Buffalo without the benefit of shootout victories. ... Miller once wore No. 39, the same number as Hasek. It was only after the Sabres drafted Miller out of Michigan State and he turned pro he switched to No. 30 to not draw comparisons to Hasek. ... Millers 234 wins are tied with Eddie Johnston on the NHL list, according to STATS LLC. Daniel Carvajal Jersey Yannick Carrasco Jersey . Walking with a noticeable limp, Kyle Lowry boarded the team bus following a 93-83 loss to the two-time defending champion Miami Heat. The result of the game was of little importance. http://www.soccerauthentic.com/uruguay-edinson-cavani-jersey/ . - Maybe putting all the focus on defence during practice after allowing 100 points for three straight games was just what Detroit needed to get its offence going.Slovakia 4, Sweden 2First Period1.
