Ryan Miller has never been an easy target in goal for the Flyers. They had only beaten him eight times in regulation play over 21 games lifetime.

So it was likely a pipe dream to think they could chase him from net in less than seven minutes Wednesday night at First Niagara Center.

Dream big because that's what happened during the Flyers' narrow 3-2 victory over the Sabres in which they had to hang onto Ilya Bryzgalov's pads at the end.
