Vancouver goalie Ryan Miller had a night to forget, allowing five goals on 31 shots in the Canucks' playoff-eliminating, 7-4 loss to the Flames in Calgary Saturday night.
Miller and the Canucks were enjoying a 3-0 lead in the first period before the Canucks tied things up. They also had a 4-3 lead in the second period. But the Flames found the net four times in the third period, although Miller was pulled for an extra attacker for two of those goals. Miller, acquired as a free agent after a long impressive career with the Buffalo Sabres, finished the series with a 1-1 record in three appearances, a goals-against average of 2.31 and a save percentage of .910.

Vancouver fans should expect to see Ryan Miller between the pipes for Game 6 Saturday.

Miller was in goal Thursday in the Canucks 2-1 win over the Flames to extend the series to a sixth game. It looks like Miller will be the Canucks goalie the rest of the series. Miller was the number one netminder until he was hurt on February 22. Eddie Lack took over and was great until coach Willie Desjardins pulled him during Game 4 and put a now healthy Miller in net. Miller has stopped 35 of 36 Calgary shots in the playoffs.
Apr 25 - 9:16 AM

Ryan Miller won his first playoff game as a Vancouver Canuck on Thursday night, making 20 saves in the 2-1 victory.

Miller wasn't sensational by any means, but he didn't need to be. He never saw more than eight shots in a period, just five in the third, and just one puck on special teams. Plus, Vancouver out-shot Calgary 43-21. Whatever the means, Vancouver now trails the series 3-2.
Apr 24 - 1:43 AM

Ryan Miller has been confirmed as Vancouver's starter for Thursday in Game 5.

He stopped all 15 shots he faced in relief on Tuesday after Eddie Lack was pulled. It will be his first start of the series and just his second since returning from a knee injury at the end of the regular season.

Ryan Miller will probably start in Game 5 on Thursday, but that hasn't been confirmed.

Miller was put into Tuesday's contest after Eddie Lack got off to a rough start and Miller managed to turn aside all 15 shots he faced. Unfortunately for the Canucks, it wasn't enough as Calgary still won 3-1 to also gain a 3-1 series lead. It's worth noting that Miller's knee is still not 100% and he doesn't think it will get to that point by the end of the playoffs.

Ryan Miller stopped all 15 shots he faced in relief of Eddie Lack in the Canucks 3-1 loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

It was Miller's first action of the series and in hindsight, a pretty good warmup for the veteran who hasn't seen a lot of game action since being put on the IR in late February. It will be interesting to see if the Canucks go back to Eddie Lack or let their former number one starter get a shot at changing the momentum in this series.
Apr 22 - 1:43 AM

Ryan Miller gave up five goals in his return to the lineup, a 6-5 overtime win for the Canucks against the Oilers on Saturday night.

Miller had not played since he he injured his knee Feb. 22, and you could tell. Miller gave up two goals in the first and three in the second. He has a 2.53 goals-against average and .911 save percentage this season. The Canucks are better off with Eddie Lack in net, but it remains to be seen if coach Willie Desjardins will go with performance over contract.
Apr 12 - 12:58 AM

Ryan Miller will make his long awaited return and start against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.

Miller hasn't played since being injured on Feb. 22nd. He comes in sporting a 28-15-1 record with six shutouts, a .913 save percentage, and a 2.47 GAA through 44 starts this season. He also boasts 23 Quality Starts against seven Really Bad Starts.
Apr 10 - 8:33 PM

Ryan Miller is ready to return from a knee injury.

Miller will serve as Eddie Lack's understudy on Thursday. With the playoffs just around the corner, the Canucks will probably continue to ride Lack over Miller given that the latter hasn't played since Feb. 22. Lack has been solid between the pipes for the Canucks, but Miller's presence provides Vancouver with an appealing alternative should Lack falter.
Apr 9 - 2:18 PM

Ryan Miller (knee) has flown to Winnipeg to meet up with his teammates and practice with the team.

Miller practiced on Friday. It was originally thought that Miller would be out for the rest of the regular season but to fly him to Winnipeg for a practice with the Canucks flying home after Saturday's game to finish the season with three games at home has our Spidey senses tingling. Do not be surprised if he gets into the final game of the season against the lowly Oilers.
Apr 4 - 10:10 AM

Ryan Miller will resume practicing with the Vancouver Canucks.

Miller isn't ready to play, but this is obviously a step in the right direction. He was previously ruled out for the remainder of the regular season, but it's not clear if he'll be available for the start of the playoffs.
Apr 3 - 11:34 AM

Ryan Miller (knee) took shots on Saturday from goalie coach Rollie Melanson.

Miller has been out five weeks thus far and while the original prognosis was four-six weeks, he may not be able to return until the playoffs. Just an update for those of you wondering about his status.
Mar 29 - 11:18 AM

Ryan Miller (knee) won't return to action before the playoffs.

That means that Eddie Lack will continue to serve as the Canucks' top netminder for the rest of the regular season. Miller hasn't played since Feb. 22 because of a sprained knee.
Mar 18 - 2:32 PM

Ryan Miller (knee) will probably need another two-to-three weeks to recover, according to Vancouver Canucks coach Willie Desjardins.

That shouldn't be regarded as a firm timetable though. Miller hasn't played since Feb. 22 due to the injury. He has a 2.47 GAA and .913 save percentage in 44 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 12 - 2:41 PM

Canucks GM Jim Benning has confirmed that Ryan Miller will be sidelined for four-to-six weeks with a sprained knee.

He was injured in Sunday's game against the New York Islanders. Eddie Lack is expected to shoulder the load in Miller's absence, but Jacob Markstrom should get some looks as well.
