Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion from a big open-ice hit from Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic on Saturday night. Lucic was given a 2-minute penalty for charging and faces a disciplinary call from the NHL on Monday. Miller was pissed after the game, and Sabres general manager Darcy Regier is calling for a suspension for Lucic.

Here’s video of the collision (via Puck Daddy):

Ouch. “I just stuck around because I wanted to say what a piece of shit I think Lucic is,” Miller said in the bowels of TD Garden after his team’s 6-2 loss. “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 shit.”

Regier made the case for suspending Lucic. “If this hit and other types of hits like this are not suspended, we are opening up the possibility of losing goaltenders to injury,” said the Sabres GM. “And not just injury, but concussion. … When I look at the position of goaltending, in a lot of ways it’s not unlike quarterback in football. I feel very strongly the protection has to be provided and players committing these types of action should be punished.”

After the hit in the first period, Miller stayed in the game until the second intermission, when he was pulled after allowing three goals. Jhonas Enroth came in and allowed three more goals in the third. Enroth will likely start on Monday against the Montreal Canadiens, and Drew McIntyre has been called up from the minors to back him up while Miller is out.
