Where was Answer Man on or around December 8?

Buffalo Sabres goalie, Ryan Miller (of "your mama" commercial fame), claims that a referee was verbally abusive to him during a game last week. According to the Buffalo News (http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/story/518825.html):

“It was just about the referee, a brief conversation I had with the ref that was a little surprising to me,” Miller said. “He told me to ‘go [bleep] myself’ because I was just asking a question."

After giving the game tape a more thorough review than the Zapruder film, the newspaper concludes:

A review of the Versus game tape, however, shows Peel having an animated discussion with Miller with 16:11 left in the second period.

So, was this really NHL referee Tim Peel pulling a Vice President Cheney v. Senator Leahy on the hapless goalie of his own free will or is our own Answer Man somehow involved? After all, Answer Man's disdain for netminders is widely known (and enjoyed by Gametime readers). I know Gametime has a source close to the ref in question. Perhaps Answer Man exploited this connection to make Peel an offer he couldn't refuse?

By the way, my initial reaction is to tell Miller to sack up because he's a grown man and sometimes grown men get told to go fuck themselves. Then again I've never played organized hockey, so I don't know how bad blood between a player and a ref might affect the game. Thoughts?
