Remember that time Ryan Miller and the Sabres were in the same hotel as a furry convention??
From the Anaheim Ducks Blog on January 25, 2010

Okay, but here’s where it gets weird: Someone snapped this photo on the right and posted it on Twitter, a shot of Sabres goalie Ryan Miller posing with two furries in Ducks and Sharks jerseys. And here’s where it gets REALLY weird: The Ducks jersey on the left? It’s No. 18, which was last worn by Drew Miller, RYAN MILLER’S BROTHER.  You can’t make this stuff up. Not only does this person own a Drew Miller jersey, but they somehow run into his brother while wearing one over a fox costume? I can’t wrap my brain around how this possibly could have happened.

If they knew this worked out well together, why did Pittsburgh have to make the Furries postpone their convention during Draft Weekend??

AHL Photo Of The Week: The Utica Comets played their franchise home opener against the Albany Devils in a sold-out Utica Memorial Auditorium on Oct. 23. (x)

The Utica Memorial Auditorium’s scoreboard is as off-center as the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Much be a new trend started in New York— off centered scoreboards.
