Everyone is getting ready for the 2008 NHL Winter Classic in their own ways.

Goaltender Ryan Miller is working on a new mask.  Or more to the point, trying to break in a new mask before next Tuesday.

For the first time this season, Miller will change lids for just one game from his standard mask - pictured to the right - to the one pictured below.

The art work on the mask holds similar elements as his previous one - "Miller Time", "Matt Man", a bulldog with a Michigan State Spartan green bowler hat, the current Sabres logo - but does have a couple of new items, including a retro logo on the crown.  

This mask, like all of Miller's others, was a creation of Bishop Designs, www.bishopdesigns.com.

Miller will auction off the mask following the NHL Winter Classic.  Specifics haven't been finalized yet, but proceeds will benefit Miller's Steadfast Foundation.

(Excuse the picture quality.  Didn't have my usual camera with me and had to take the shots with my phone.  The colors are much more vibrant in person.)
