The Pittsburgh Penguins faced the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night and before the game, the Penguins recognized the NHL players who participated in the Olympics. When Buffalo, and Team USA, goaltender Ryan Miller was announced, the reaction from the Pittsburgh crowd was surprisingly welcome for a visiting player. Here were the thoughts from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette:â†µ
The ovation for Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller was stunning. It was honestly, playoff loud for Ryan Miller. The visiting goaltender. We understand it. We agree with it. We just didn't expect it.â†µ
Miller's ovation was even louder than that received by Pittsburgh's second son, Sidney Crosby.
