Kaleta Scores, Miller Shines, and Sabres Win 1-0.

If a team wants to go deep in the playoffs they have to make the other team’s best players beat them. Patrick Kaleta is not one of those players. Scoring the first –and only — goal in the series, Kaleta gave his team a 1-0 series lead against the higher-seeded Flyers as Ryan Miller stopped all 35 Flyers’ shots for a 1-0 Buffalo win in Game 1 of this Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series. The first period was frantic and fast-paced, but the score resulted in a scoreless tie. Even though the shot count was tied at 10, the Flyers spent a majority …
