Awesome: Goalie Ryan Miller Somehow Hits Photographer In The Face With Puck

During the Buffalo Sabres 3-0 shutout victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night, goaltender Ryan Miller made a nearly impossible shot: when trying to clear the puck out of the zone, Miller somehow was able to shoot the puck through the tiny hole in the glass that photographers use to get unobstructed photos of the action on the ice. Pow! Right in the kisser!

In the end, the photographer seemed to be no worse for wear. Sure, he got a nasty bruise on his cheek for his work in the trenches but ultimately received Miller’s goalie stick after time expired as some sort of compensation for his injury. So I guess all’s well that end’s well. Or something.
