Miller saved just 30 of 33 shots during Thursday's loss to St. Louis. The road loss dropped Miller to 5-12-2 away from Rogers Arena with a disastrous .910 save percentage and 3.12 GAA. While he's been better at home (13-11-4 record, .919 save percentage and 3.12 GAA), the veteran backstop is nothing more than a matchup play in the majority of fantasy settings, and especially after Vancouver unloaded assets at the trade deadline. Keep your expectations in check with Miller going forward.
Miller will start Thursday's game against the Blues, Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province reports. Miller was not spotted at Wednesday's skate, but based on the subsequent report that he will start Thursday's game, we'll assume that his absence was maintenance-related. The veteran goalie made 40 saves in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over Chicago, but he's also allowed 13 goals over his last three starts.
Miller made 40 saves in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blackhawks. Miller gave up the final three goals in regulation, but that's understandable considering his team was ultimately outshot, 44-15. He even had to set aside four Chicago attempts in overtime before Daniel Sedin finally won it at the 2:12 mark with Vancouver's first shot of the extra frame. Miller came in having won just one of his previous 10 starts, so don't expect this surprise victory to start a trend.
Miller will draw into the starter's net for Tuesday night's game in Chicago, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports. Miller is riding a five-game losing streak, in which he has posted a .911 save percentage and 3.44 GAA. Those numbers are bad, but to be fair, the offense in front of him has recorded just nine goals total during that span. Don't expect much from Miller against an excellent Blackhawks team that is averaging 3.00 goals per game in March.
Miller was beaten by four of 36 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Dallas. Miller was hoping for more offensive support against a team that had been outscored 17-4 over its previous three-games, but the 29th-ranked Canucks offense surprised no one in allowing the Stars to pull away in the third period after entering the frame tied 2-2. The veteran has won just one of his past 10 starts, and he's unlikely to see improved success with a five-game road trip featuring four likely playoff-bound opponents next on the schedule.
