Miroslav will play February 8th for the Sabres against Ottawa. He'll then fly to Salt Lake City to play for Slovakia in the opening game against Germany on Saturday before flying back to New Jersey for a game against the Devils on Sunday. In three days, he'll play three games and travel nearly 4,000 miles!
