Miller (abdomen) has been cleared to suit up against the Sabres on Thursday, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.

Miller told reporters he expects to back up Jacob Markstrom against Buffalo. The two netminders have helped carry the Canucks to a 3-0-0 start with Miller holding the slight statistical edge after not allowing a goal in his one start. It appears competition is bringing out the best in both players, but the 36-year-old Miller will be eager to prove he is still the starting goalie in Vancouver.
