Free agent goalie Mikael Tellqvist signed a contract with Ak Bars Kazan of the Kontinental Hockey League (Russia).
Buffalo G Mikael Tellqvist emerged victorious on Saturday in a 6-1 win over the Bruins in the team's final game of the season. He made 34 saves and allowed one goal, improving his record to 9-6-1 to finish the season, playing for both the Coyotes and Sabres.
Buffalo G Ryan Miller fell short in Saturday's game against the Devils, allowing three goals in the first 27:04 of the game and was pulled after the second period. The Sabres tried to make a furious comeback in the third period but fell short after Mikael Tellqvist came on in relief of Miller and made six saves, allowing no goals.
Sabres G Mikael Tellqvist made 30 saves during a 5-3 win against the Panthers Wednesday. Tellqvist fell behind 3-1 before Buffalo scored the final four goals of the game for the victory. It was Tellqvist's first win in four appearances with the Sabres.
Goalie Ryan Miller returned to Sabres on Monday, participating in his first full practice with a team that has been struggling since he was injured a month ago. He's been skating lightly on his own over the past week, but was in full equipment and taking shots during Monday's workout. Miller has been out since sustaining a high ankle sprain against the New York Rangers on Feb. 21. He didn't give a timetable for when he would be ready to play in a game. "My plan is to get in as quick as possible, but I really can't tell you when that's going to be," Miller said. "It's all dependent on how quickly I get myself up to speed and how my ankle reacts. You don't want to do anything too quick." Backup Patrick Lalime has started all but one of the 12 games that Miller has missed, while Mikael Tellqvist had the other start.
