Canucks' Miller Disappoints In Series-Ending Loss

News: Ryan Miller allowed five goals on 31 shots in Saturday's series-ending Game 6 loss to Calgary.
Analysis: This marks the second straight year Ryan Miller has been acquired by a new team but that team has failed to make it out of the first round of the playoffs. It was an awful night for Miller, who had played very well in Games 4 and 5. While it's easy to point the finger at the goalie, the Canucks blew a 3-0 lead in the game and left the 34-year-old out to dry on a few of the goals. Eddie Lack proved his worth in the regular season and at times in the playoffs, but Miller still remains the starting goaltender in Vancouver as the Canucks enter the 2015 offseason.

Canucks' Miller To Start In Game 6

News: Ryan Miller will start in net against the Flames for Game 6 on Saturday.
Analysis: Ryan Miller made the most of a relief appearance in Game 4 and had a solid outing as the starter in Game 5 that secured his spot in net for Saturday. His last time out resulted in 20 saves and one goal allowed, but the 34-year-old will be taking the ice for a second-straight elimination game.

Miller, Canucks Force Game 6

News: Ryan Miller stopped 20 of 21 shots and got just enough help from his teammates Thursday to escape with a 2-1 Game 5 victory against the Flames and stay alive in the series.
Analysis: After a strong relief appearance in Game 4, Ryan Miller didn't miss a step in Game 5, and his teammates were all over Jonas Hiller on the other end, firing 43 shots -- more than twice as many as Miller had to face. It seems almost certain that he'll be back in there Saturday in Calgary for Games 6.

Canucks Turn To Miller For Game 5

News: Ryan Miller will receive the start in goal for Thursday's game against the Flames, the Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: With the Canucks down 3-1 in the series and facing elimination Thursday, coach Willie Desjardins opted to make a change in the net for the first time this postseason. Eddie Lack will hit the bench after posting a .886 save percentage through four games, opening the door for Ryan Miller to reestablish himself as the Canucks' primary netminder. Though Miller looked rough in his initial return from a long-term knee injury in the regular-season finale against the Coyotes, he was effective in relief of Lack in Game 4, stopping all 15 shots he faced. The former U.S. Olympic Team goalie is no stranger to the big stage, and the Canucks are hoping that his wealth of experience can help keep the team alive in the playoffs.

Canucks' Miller Perfect In Relief

News: Ryan Miller stopped all 15 shots he faced in relief of an ineffective Eddie Lack in Tuesday's Game 4 loss to Calgary.
Analysis: The Canucks now trail the series 3-1 as it heads back to Vancouver, and with Lack -- the starting playoff goalie to this point -- having played poorly in consecutive games, it seems likely that the fate of Vancouver's season gets hung on Ryan Miller's shoulders in Game 5.

Canucks' Miller Cedes Game 1 Start To Lack

News: Ryan Miller will serve as the backup goalie for Wednesday's playoff opener against the Flames, as Eddie Lack makes the start, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller returned from a seven-week absence due to a knee injury to start Saturday's regular-season finale against the Oilers. A strong turn in goal might have resulted in him earning the nod for Game 1 of the postseason, but he was only able to turn away 23 of 28 shots before escaping with the overtime win. Since Miller wasn't overwhelmingly impressive this season before his return from injury, coach Willie Desjardins opted to stick with Lack, who guided the Canucks to the playoffs while Miller was sidelined. Nonetheless, Lack's overall numbers weren't dramatically better than Miller's, so both goalies could see a fair amount of work throughout the first round.

Canucks' Miller Allows Five Goals In Return

News: Ryan Miller returned to the crease Saturday, stopping 23 of 28 shots in an overtime win over the Oilers.
Analysis: Not a great outing for Ryan Miller, especially when you consider the team he was going up against. Don't be too concerned, though, as he was making just his first appearance since Feb.11. Miller finishes the season 29-15-1 with a .911 save percentage and 2.53 GAA. While he's recovered from his knee injury, 27-year-old Eddie Lack has been very good of late and it wouldn't be a surprise if Miller is sitting on the bench come Game 1 Wednesday against Calgary.

Canucks' Miller Between Pipes For Finale

News: Ryan Miller will be in the crease for the Canucks' season finale against the Oilers on Saturday.
Analysis: After being activated from injured reserve Thursday, Ryan Miller served as the backup to Eddie Lack in a 5-0 win over the Coyotes. Like the Coyotes, the Oilers are another one of the league's bottom feeders with a 24-44-13 record, presenting Miller with a favorable opportunity to reestablish himself after a six-week absence. Coach Willie Desjardins hasn't labeled either Miller or Lack as his No. 1 goalie entering the postseason, but that could change if Miller excels in Saturday's outing.

Canucks Activate Miller

News: Ryan Miller (knee) was activated from injured reserve and will serve as the backup to starter Eddie Lack in Thursday's game against the Coyotes, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: The Canucks sent Jacob Markstrom back to AHL Utica to clear the way for Ryan Miller, who will be active for the first time since spraining his knee in a Feb. 22 game against the Islanders. With Miller checking out fine after practicing with the team the last couple of days, he'll be eased into action as the backup netminder Thursday, but it seems reasonable to expect him to draw the start for the Canucks' final regular-season game Saturday against the Oilers. If Miller fares well in that outing, he could conceivably enter the postseason as the Canucks' No. 1 goalie ahead of Lack, who has posted comparable numbers this season.

Canucks' Miller Could Serve As Backup Thursday

News: Ryan Miller (knee) could be healthy enough to serve as the backup goalie to Eddie Lack for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, Jeff Paterson of the TSN 1040 reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller practiced with the Canucks once again Wednesday, sharing a net with Jacob Markstrom on the opposite end of the ice as Lack. Though Miller still remains listed on the Canucks' injured reserve list and needs to receive medical clearance to play, there appears to be growing momentum that he might be available for one of the last two games of the regular season. If Miller is able to demonstrate that he's sufficiently healthy for the postseason, it's possible he could reclaim the No. 1 job from Lack.

Nux's Miller Could Play Before Regular Season Ends

News: GM Jim Benning said Friday suggested that Ryan Miller (knee) hasn't been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season and might be able to play as soon as next week, the Vancouver Province reports. "It could happen," Benning said. "We're going to take it day by day."
Analysis: Ryan Miller joined the Canucks in Winnipeg for practice Friday, creating optimism that a return might be on the horizon. Benning said that they want the goalie to face shots in the next few days, and if all goes well, he could be cleared to man the net for one or two of the Canucks' final three games. Eddie Lack has kept the Canucks on sturdy ground for a playoff spot during Miller's absence, but it seems apparent the team would prefer to enter the postseason with the battle-tested Miller healthy and back in the crease on a regular basis.

Canucks' Miller (Knee) Joining Team For Practice

News: Ryan Miller (knee) is expected to join the Canucks for practice Friday, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: While Ryan Miller's return to the team is potentially a good sign, his timetable reportedly remains unchanged. He's getting closer to returning to the club, however, which will be important for the Canucks as they prepare for the playoffs. However, the long lay-off and the play of Eddie Lack could prevent him from immediately retaking the No. 1 netminder role.

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.

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.

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.
