No Sabres responded on the ice, but Miller had plenty to say after the game. John Vogl of the Buffalo News tweeted out the following from Miller:
"I just stuck around because I wanted to say what a piece of [feces] I think Lucic is. Fifty pounds on me, and he runs me like that? It's unbelievable. Everyone in this city see him as a big, tough, solid player. I respected him for how hard he plays. That was gutless. Gutless. Piece of [feces]."Miller went after his own team for their lack of response as well and he is absolutely right they should have gone after Lucic to send a message that it was unacceptable. Lucic while denying it was intentional after the game said that if it had happened to a Bruins goaltender they would have responded while Buffalo didn't.
