Team USA Hockey will be back in action on Saturday against Russia. For a third Olympics, Sabres goalie Ryan Miller is on the team.
These are some of the jaw dropping saves Ryan Miller made during the 2010 Vancouver Games. For those two weeks, he was simply the best in the world becoming a hockey icon throughout America that was four years ago, now Miller is a backup in Sochi meaning saves like these America may not see again.
Ryan Miller transformed into the American hero during the 2010 Vancouver Games.So brilliant that he was named tournament MVP for a silver medal team. Now Miller is back for his third Olympics, a feat that seemed doubtful after last NHL season, the worst of his career. The 33-year-old has been rejuvenated, back into the conversation as the world's best even on the league’s worst team...
It remains to be seen if Miller will factor into these Sochi games. The LA Kings Jonathan Quick started against Slovakia and the team announced Friday Quick will once against play against Russia on Saturday Miller understands one slip up and he could be called upon.
So don't expect to see Ryan taking a tour of the Sochi beaches. The American and Canadian rivalry was the lasting image of those Vancouver Games. Four years later, the red, white and blue want a golden finish.
