Sabres trade Miller, Ott to Blues
The Central Division-leading Blues shored up their goaltending in an attempt to avoid another disappointing playoff run after being eliminated by Los Angeles in successive seasons.
Miller won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's best goalie in 2010, the year he was the most valuable player of the Olympic tournament in Vancouver, and is Buffalo's franchise leader with 284 victories. This season, he's 5-22-3 with a 2.72 goals-against average and .923 save percentage.
Halak was in his fourth season with the Blues after spending his first four years with Montreal. He has a 24-9-4 record with a 2.23 goals against average, a .917 save percentage.
Cody Hodgson, Brian Flynn, Matt Moulson, and Tyler Myers scored for Buffalo, while Enroth played well in the absence of Miller. James Sheppard and Patrick Marleau scored for San Jose.
The win gave Buffalo three straight wins for the first time since last April.
