It's not easy for a goaltender to jump. Ryan Miller proved it can be done, though.

The Sabres' goalie jumped for joy Friday night at the conclusion of Buffalo's 2-1 shootout victory over Boston, a victory that moved the Sabres to 3-0-1 in their last four games.

Miller made 35 saves during the game and stopped three of four in the shootout, leaping in the air as his teammates rushed toward him when Benoit Pouliot fired wide. Thomas Vanek and Derek Roy scored for the Sabres in the shootout, Roy getting the winner when his backhand hit the right post and went in.

"I'm just happy to get some wins," Miller said. "I guess it doesn't really matter who it's against right now, but we know they're a very good team. We had to play a good game to beat them. Those do feel good."

"He's playing unbelievable," center Tyler Ennis said of Miller. "We all know that is the way he plays, and we have a lot of confidence in him."

The Sabres' celebration ended quickly as they left First Niagara Center for a flight to New York. They visit the Rangers tonight.

The Bruins opened overtime on their fourth power play of the night. Sabres left wing Thomas Vanek got nabbed for high-sticking Johnny Boychuk with 23 seconds left in regulation. The Sabres allowed just one shot.
