TVOS at The Hockey Writers: Flyers and Sabres - Bobrovsky vs. Miller

Once again, the Philadelphia Flyers will rely on an unproven goaltender in the playoffs, as rookie Sergei Bobrovsky will carry the load in the first round match-up against the Buffalo Sabres. For Buffalo, they can enter the series with the confidence that comes with having one of the best in the business in their goal - 2010 Vezina Trophy winner Ryan Miller.

Miller finished the season recovering from an "upper body" injury but Jhonas Enroth helped secure seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers have last year's playoff hero Michael Leighton on the roster as an insurance policy. If Miller is not 100% and Bobrovsky stumbles out of the gate, we could see a battle between Enroth and Leighton before the series finally concludes.
