Miller scored a goal and assisted on another in a 4-2 win over the Islanders on Thursday. Miller scored his fifth goal of the year via his patented one-timer, giving the Lightning a 2-1 lead halfway through the game. He then added an assist on Steven Stamkos' empty-netter at the end of the game. On the year, Miller has 14 points in 16 games and is coming off back-to-back 50-point seasons. If he's not on your fantasy radar already, you best start keeping tabs on him.
Miller picked up two helpers Sunday in a 6-3 victory over the Blackhawks. This gives Miller eight points through seven games, with all of those points coming in his last five contests. So far, the 25-year-old is shaping up to be a power-play specialist. Though he's only averaged 14:41 per game in ice time, he's also played 4:16 per contest with the extra man. That should be enough to keep him interesting to fantasy owners.
Miller scored a power-play goal and added an even-strength assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to Minnesota. He has six points (two goals, four assists) in six games this season, but they have all come in his last four outings. Miller saw a huge uptick in fantasy value last season when he was placed on the Bolts' top line. So far this season, he has moved around the lineup, but seems to be producing regardless. Check your wire, just in case Miller is still out there. And get him working for you.
Miller put up three power-play points in Saturday's 8-2 romp over Columbus. He scored a goal and added two helpers. Miller was a strong addition to the top line last season, but coach Jon Cooper has already started juggling lines. Miller's ultimate landing spot probably hasn't been determined yet, but his role on the power play looks strong.
Miller (illness) skated on the top power-play unit during morning skate, which almost assuredly means he'll be in the lineup for Saturday's season opener against the Panthers, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. Miller totaled 23 goals and 35 assists between the Rangers and Lightning last season, proving to be a quality point producer despite those franchises heading in entirely different directions. He will join forces with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit -- those guys had an eye-popping 186 points between them last year.
