Miller gave up two goals on 28 shots in Saturday's loss to the Flames. The final 4-1 score makes it seem as if Miller had a rough night, but he actually played quite well, as the Flames scored two empty-netters. The Canucks have now lost four straight games and Miller hasn't won a game since Jan.17. The veteran's .914 save percentage is decent and he's played 35 games this season, but with the team's overall struggles, don't expect a boatload of wins for Miller in the second half of the season.
Miller will get the start Saturday against Calgary. Miller turned in an impressive outing in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Columbus, stopping 27 of the 28 shots he faced. He has one win and one overtime loss against Calgary this season, allowing a total of four goals in those contests.
Miller made 27 saves in a 2-1 shootout loss to Columbus on Thursday. Miller did all he could to give his team a chance to win, but the Canucks managed just one goal on 38 shots against Joonas Korpisalo, including a few shots that hit the post. The 35-year-old veteran has now lost three straight games, although not much can be blamed on him when the team can't provide any goal support. Miller is no longer the goalie he once was but still a serviceable No. 1, but any more losses or sub-par performances could pave the way for Jacob Markstrom to start more games.
Miller logged a mediocre .895 save percentage in Tuesday's defeat to the Predators. Miller has been having a difficult 2015-16 campaign, registering a dreadful 2.71 GAA in 33 contests. Since returning from an injury, the veteran has one victory in five attempts, allowing 13 goals over that span. It may be only a matter of time before Vancouver turns to fellow netminder Jacob Markstrom to serve as their regular starter.
Miller will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Predators. Miller had a rough outing in his last start, surrendering four goals on 29 shots faced in a loss to Pittsburgh. The 35-year-old veteran goaltender has compiled an 11-13-7 record this season with a .913 save percentage and 2.73 GAA. He will face a Predators team Tuesday that currently occupies sixth place in the Central Division, though they have won three of their past four games.
