Julylights: July 17th, Ryan Miller's Falling Glove Save

Welcome to Julylights, a month long series taking the top plays of the '11-'12 season and giving them to you one a day, every day of the month of July.

Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres had a roller coaster season last year. They came into the season considered Stanley Cup contenders, but got out to a slow start and did not live up to may expectations. Miller alone had a tough season, that involved as much physical contact as some players, thanks a lot Milan Lucic.

Despite missing some time with a concussion, Miller returned and anchored the Sabres during a late season push for the playoffs that came up just points short.

Although it was not Miller's best season he still eclipsed the 30 win mark, grabbed a .916 save percentage, and had six shutouts in his 61 games played. Some have questioned Millers' status as an elite goalie in the NHL and whether or not he is on the decline.

It is saves like the one he made against the Nashville Predators that give Buffalo hope, and the idea that Miller is still the Vezina worthy goalie that once maned their crease.

After trying to swat the puck out of the air, Miller had to scramble to make the save as the puck fell to the ice in front of the crease. Falling to his back, Miller got his glove down and made the miraculous glove save on the Predator's Matt Halischuk.
