  Miller stops 31 shots; Ducks hang on to beat Sabres 3-2 BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Ryan Miller stopped 31 shots, including all 15 he faced in the third period, and the Anaheim Ducks held off the Buffalo Sabres for a 3-2 win Sunday. Jakob Silfverberg, Ryan Getzlaf and Nick Ritchie staked Anaheim to a 3-0 lead by scoring over a 5:45 span in the first period, and the Ducks closed out a 3-0-2 road trip. The five-game point streak is Anaheim’s longest since winning five straight games from Nov. 27 to Dec. 5, 2018. The 39-year-old Miller, who spent his first 11 seasons with the Sabres, earned his 385th career win to move into a tie with Mike Vernon for 15th on the NHL list.

Ducks goaltender Ryan Miller reportedly acquired a box of Thin Mints from a local Girl Scout in exchange for a warm-up puck.

Sources say the sudden demand for Girl Scout cookies this year around the trade deadline drove Miller to make a bold move to bolster his pantry at home before the opportunity slipped through his fingers. The interaction also reportedly left the local Girl Scout in a great mood, as she feels she came out of this deal with a valuable long-term asset.

The move by Miller is particularly notable since it’s unlike a member of the Ducks organization to make a significant trade that stands to put the team over the top. With the team in rebuilding mode, it appears this could be the dawn of a new, more aggressive roster-building strategy for Anaheim.
