Jason Pominville, Chris Drury and Thomas Vanek also scored for the Sabres. Buffalo swept the four-game season series against the Hurricanes, the team that beat the Sabres in the Eastern Conference final last season en route to the Stanley Cup.

Craig Adams spoiled Miller’s shutout bid with a short-handed goal late in the third.
