Miller finished the season with a 9-6-4 record, 3.10 GAA and .907 save percentage. Nineteen of his 23 appearances were starts. Used sparingly behind workhorse starter John Gibson (51 starts), Miller's nine victories and pedestrian ratios didn't do much for owners this year. It was also the first time since 2013-14 that he didn't post a shutout. Miller is a pending unrestricted free agent who's heading into his age-40 season, so there isn't likely to be much fantasy run left in the two-time 40-plus-game winner.
Miller allowed two goals on 42 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators. Despite a four-goal first period for the Ducks, the bulk of the shots were flung at Miller, who performed admirably in the win. The 39-year-old goalie improved to 9-6-4 with a 3.10 GAA and a .907 save percentage in 23 appearances. With John Gibson (groin) out, Miller is the temporary No. 1 option for the Ducks in goal.
Miller will tend the home goal for Tuesday's matchup against the Senators. Miller has been decent this season in a backup role for the Ducks, going 8-6-4 along with a 3.16 GAA and .904 save percentage. He'll draw a nice matchup against an Ottawa offense that ranks 24th in the league in goals per game this season (2.70).
Miller surrendered five goals on 30 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Wild on Sunday. The contest was back and forth throughout Sunday, but Josh Manson's tripping penalty in overtime led to Kevin Fiala's game-winning goal. That saddled Miller with defeat -- he dropped to 8-6-4 with a 3.16 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 22 appearances. The 39-year-old goalie could see a large role if John Gibson (groin) remains sidelined.
Miller will patrol the crease for Sunday's home contest against Minnesota, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. With John Gibson (groin) unavailable, Miller will start while Anthony Stolarz serves as the backup. In his last start, the Michigan native allowed three goals in a win over Colorado on March 4. If Gibson misses extended time, Miller should see a bulk of the workload for Anaheim.
