Canucks' Miller Faces Shots Thursday

News: Ryan Miller (knee) faced shots at Thursday's optional practice, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: It's a positive sign for the goalie, but there still appears to be significant doubt that he'll be back before the regular season draws to a close. For the moment, the Canucks seem to be eyeing a postseason return for Ryan Miller, but given that he hasn't played since Feb. 22, it may be difficult for him to immediately win back the No. 1 goalie role.

Canucks' Miller Skating With Equipment

News: Ryan Miller (knee) skated Tuesday morning while wearing his goalie equipment, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller had previously been limited to skating without gear, so Tuesday's activity represents a step in the right direction, albeit a small one. The goaltender still isn't facing shots and appears unlikely to be back before the regular season draws to a close.

Canucks' Miller Skating Without Gear

News: Coach Willie Desjardins said Thursday that Ryan Miller (knee) has resumed skating without gear.
Analysis: It was reported earlier in the week that the Canucks weren't expecting on having Ryan Miller back for the remainder of the regular season, but Desjardins hasn't been willing to confirm as much quite yet. While it's positive to see that Miller is back on the ice in some capacity, until he starts facing shots with his pads on during practice, fantasy owners shouldn't need to begin prepping for his return.

Canucks' Miller Ruled Out For Regular Season

News: Ryan Miller (leg) has been ruled out from a return before the conclusion of the regular season, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.
Analysis: The news would seem to confirm that Ryan Miller isn't recovering as quickly as anticipated and will miss the long end of the 4-to-6 week timetable the Canucks laid out for his return in late February. The Canucks have been able to stay afloat with Eddie Lack ascending to the top spot on the depth chart, and he's excelled to the point that the team could have a legitimate goalie controversy once Miller is due back. Miller's three-year contract affords him job security for the long haul, but the Canucks may not be willing to pin their hopes on the netminder in the playoffs while he's coming off a long-term injury.

Canucks' Miller Still 2-To-3 Weeks Away

News: Coach Willie Desjardins said Ryan Miller remains 2-to-3 weeks away from returning to games, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller's return timetable seemingly lines up with the original 4-to-6 week absence the Canucks outlined back on Feb. 25. The team has received strong outings in the net from Eddie Lack in Miller's stead, so there's no immediate need to rush the veteran goalie back at less-than-optimal health while the Canucks continue to perform competitively.

Canucks' Miller Out 4-To-6 Weeks With Knee Sprain

News: General manager Jim Benning said Wednesday that Ryan Miller's MRI confirmed a sprained knee, which will keep him out for approximately 4-to-6 weeks, TSN 1040 AM reports.
Analysis: The Canucks were fully bracing for Ryan Miller to miss multiple weeks after he suffered the injury in a collision Sunday. The lengthy recovery timetable will threaten Miller's availability to return before the end of the regular season, forcing the team to cast their lot with the goalie combination of Eddie Lack and Jacob Markstrom over the next several games. Those in season-long leagues who haven't already dropped Miller may want to consider doing so given that he only figures to see a handful of starts at best over the remainder of the season.

Canucks' Miller Listed On IR

News: Ryan Miller (leg) is being listed on injured reserve on the Canucks' official website.
Analysis: GM Jim Benning announced after Ryan Miller underwent an MRI on Monday that the goalie had no definitive timetable for a return, though it appears likely that the team is preparing for a multi-week absence. Jacob Markstrom was recalled from AHL Utica in a corresponding move to give the team an extra goalie, while Eddie Lack assumes the No. 1 role for Vancouver for the foreseeable future. The Canucks should gain more clarity on a timetable for Miller once he's able to resume skating again.

Canucks' Miller To Have MRI

News: Ryan Miller will fly back to Vancouver on Monday to have an MRI, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Analysis: Once the Canucks get the results of Monday's test, they'll have a better idea regarding the extent of the injury that he suffered in a collision during Sunday's game against the Islanders. Eddie Lack will pick up the extra playing time in goal while Ryan Miller is on the shelf.

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller Expected To Start

News: Ryan Miller is expected to start in Sunday's game against the Islanders.
Analysis: Ryan Miller will return to the net after a day off Friday, with a tough opponent in the Islanders. He carries a 27-15-1 record with a 2.49 GAA and .912 save percentage into Sunday's matchup, and will look for his second straight win in goal.

Canucks' Miller Exits With Injury

News: Ryan Miller was removed from Sunday's game against the Islanders, after colliding with another player.
Analysis: Ryan Miller was replaced by Eddie Lack early in the second period, shortly after the Canucks took a 1-0 lead. Vancouver's next game is scheduled for Tuesday in Boston, and there will likely be an update on Miller's status after Sunday's game.

Canucks' Miller In Net Sunday

News: Ryan Miller will start between the pipes against the Islanders on Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller was the expected goalie for Sunday's contest, and he is indeed in net for a tough matchup against the high-powered Islanders. He's coming off a tough outing in net, and will look for a better result Sunday.

Miller, Canucks Come Out On Top In Shootout

News: Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 34 shots, but held strong in the shootout to pick up a 5-4 win over the Rangers on Thursday.
Analysis: Not an impressive start for Ryan Miller, who's turned in pretty spotty play overall recently, but at least he won. Since shutting out the Penguins on Feb. 7, he's allowed 14 goals in four games, and he's posted save marks south of .900 in six of his last 10 starts. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he has only four wins in that span.

Ryan Miller

Canucks Go With Miller On Thursday

News: Ryan Miller is in line to draw the start Thursday against the Rangers, Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller returns to the Vancouver net on Thursday after giving way to Eddie Lack in Monday's 3-2 win over the Wild. He'll take aim at a Rangers' squad that has won for straight contests, while scoring 22 goals in that span.

Canucks' Miller Falls To Flames Saturday

News: Ryan Miller allowed three goals on 34 shots in Saturday's loss to Calgary.
Analysis: A strong outing from Ryan Miller, but not the right result. It was his second straight start, though, as he had played Friday against Boston, so we can't really complain. While Miller's .913 save percentage and 2.46 GAA are in the middle of the pack, his 26-15-1 record is one of the best in the NHL. Keep the 34-year-old rolling, as he's going to be key for the Canucks in their stretch drive to the postseason.

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller To Start Saturday

News: Ryan Miller will get the start in net Saturday against the Flames, Jim Jamieson of The Province reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller will look to secure back-to-back wins on Saturday when the Canucks take on Calgary. The netminder's ratios (2.44 GAA, .913 save percentage) might not be as strong as his fantasy owners were expecting coming into the season, but his sterling 26-14-1 record has more than made up for it.

Miller Shepherds Canucks To Victory Friday

News: Ryan Miller turned aside 21 of 23 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Ryan Miller rode the coattails of Shawn Matthias' hat trick to improve his season record to 26-14-1 in what was his 600th career NHL appearance. While he didn't necessarily dominate in the victory, Miller was able to steer clear of the mistakes that had plagued him his last time out against the Wild on Monday, which resulted in his early removal. Miller's up-and-down play of late has resulted in Eddie Lack assuming more work, but he's still very secure in his role as the Canucks' No. 1 netminder.

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller In Net Friday

News: Ryan Miller will start in goal Friday against the Bruins, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller had his best month of the season in January, posting a 1.80 GAA and a .937 save percentage but finished the month with just a 5-4 record. His start to February has been rough, but he'll look to turn things around against a Bruins squad averaging 2.58 goals per game this season.

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller Pulled In Loss

News: Ryan Miller allowed five goals on just 18 shots before being replaced in the second period of Monday's 5-3 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Ryan Miller has now lost three of his past four starts and has allowed 13 goals in the losses. The 34-year-old's numbers don't stand out from the pack, but his 25 wins rank among the best and he'll continue to see the bulk of the starts so the wins should keep coming.

Canucks Expected To Go With Miller On Monday

News: Ryan Miller was the first goalie off the ice at the team's morning skate and is expected to be in net against the Wild on Monday, Canucks announcer Dave Tomlinson reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller snapped out of a slump with an impressive 31 save shutout against the Penguins on Saturday, so it makes sense that head coach Willie Desjardins would turn to him again. The 34-year-old has a 2.35 GAA and .916 save percentage on the season, but has had a string of sub-par performances before Saturday's shutout.

Canucks' Miller Blanks Penguins

News: Ryan Miller stopped all 31 shots he faced in Saturday's win over the Penguins.
Analysis: A fantastic outing from Ryan Miller, who rebounded in a big away after giving up five goals to the Sharks on Thursday. The 34-year-old was rock-solid Saturday, shutting down Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang and company. Miller now owns a 25-13-1 record, to go with six shutouts -- second most in the NHL. His save percentage and GAA are right in the middle of the pack, but he'll keep piling on the wins as long as he continues to give the team a fighting chance every night.

Ryan Miller, G, VAN Canucks' Miller Confirmed To Start Saturday

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller Confirmed To Start Saturday

News: Ryan Miller is confirmed to start Saturday's game against the Penguins, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller will try to shake off a rotten start following the All-Star break with a match against a Penguins squad coming off back-to-back shutout victories. Regular goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was responsible for those blankings, however; instead, backup Thomas Greiss will be called upon to match up against Miller on Saturday.

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller Expected To Start Saturday

News: Ryan Miller was absent from Saturday's optional skate, an indication he'll be the starter in goal against the Penguins, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller has been mostly dreadful coming out of the All-Star break, turning in save percentages of .900 or below in four of his last five outings. The downturn in performance is somewhat surprising, given that Miller had been at his best in January, posting a 1.80 GAA and .937 save percentage during the month. Expect him to right the ship eventually, though a match against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins might not represent a great opportunity for him to turn the tide.

Canucks Expected To Go With Miller On Thursday

News: Ryan Miller was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and is expected to get the starting nod Thursday against the Sharks, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller was spectator Tuesday while backup Eddie Lack drew the start against the Jets, holding the opposition to two goals on 28 shots in an overtime victory. While Miller's struggles out of the All-Star break prompted Lack to receive a rare start outside of a back-to-back scenario, Miller's large contract and generally reliable performance this season give him ample job security. He'll have a good chance at getting back on track against the Sharks, against whom he owns a 9-1-1 record for his career.

Canucks' Miller Rocked For Five In Loss

News: Ryan Miller was beaten five times on 38 shots in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Not a terrific outing for Ryan Miller, who's been less than impressive lately, with sub-.900 save marks in four of his last five. He'll have every chance to turn it around, though, as Eddie Lack hasn't outplayed him by any stretch of the term.

Ryan Miller

Canucks' Miller To Start Thursday

News: Ryan Miller will start Thursday's game against the Sharks.
Analysis: Given that Eddie Lack handled Tuesday's game against Winnipeg, there was little doubt that Ryan Miller would return to goal Thursday. Miller has struggled since the All-Star break, but still has excellent job security.
