BOSTON — Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller was asked this morning after his team’s morning skate in preparation for Game 6 of its Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Bruins which team has more pressure on it at TD Garden.
The Bruins lead the series, three games to two, and would have to play Game 7 on the road if they lose.
“They went up 3-1. It’s their series to lose, in many regards,” the star goaltender said. “It’s pretty equal. There should be pressure on us. We don’t want to go home. For them, they’ve got something to lose now.”
More than a dozen Sabres players took part in an option morning skate before their second straight do-or-die game. Miller was asked about his team’s relaxed demeanor.
“We got in a little bit of hole here and there’s no use getting worked up about it or nervous about it,” he said. “It’s just another hockey game and you go out and play. We all want to win, but you have to do the right things, have to do them the right way. Getting uptight and squeezing and taking it to that level, I don’t think that serves this team well. I think we’re better when we’re composed and relaxed and just go out and compete.”
