Miller signed a one-year extension with the Ducks on Thursday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. Miller appeared in 20 games last season, going 8-7-2 while posting a 2.76 GAA and .912 save percentage and recording one shutout. Among American-born goaltenders, the Michigan native is also the all-time leader in wins (378) and second in shutouts (44) over 757 career NHL games.
Miller stopped 25 of 26 shots in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Flames. The Flames didn't have their best lineup out there, but a win is a win in what is likely Miller's last appearance of the season. He improved to 8-7-2 with a 2.76 GAA and a .912 save percentage. The Ducks are the only team to close their season on Friday, finishing against the rival Kings, but John Gibson is likely to make the start.
Miller will defend the home net Wednesday against the Flames, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. While the Flames are typically a team to fear in regards to fantasy, the opposition will rest many of its regulars with the top seed in the west already secured. As a result, Miller will face a much lighter lineup that could make him a sneaky play in daily formats. Of course, he'll need to post a much better performance than he did last Friday when the red light behind him was lit up six times by Calgary.
Miller allowed six goals on 37 shots in a 6-1 loss to the Flames on Friday. Calgary absolutely took over the game starting in the second period, as in the final two stanzas, the Flames outshot the Ducks, 29-12. Miller couldn't bail them out, letting in five during the final two periods. The veteran goaltender has yielded six goals in two of his last three outings. He is 7-7-2 with a 2.86 GAA and .909 save percentage in 19 games this season.
Miller will defend the road cage in Friday's game versus the Flames. Miller has struggled lately with three straight loses and an ugly .848 save percentage in that span. The Flames feature one of the league's premier offenses, but they've struggled with just one goal over the last two games. Miller will look to get back on track and steal one here.
