Unlike in game four, the Detroit Red Wings were able to shut things down defensively in game five.
The Wings blew a 2-0 lead in game four, but they shut Tampa Bay down when they went ahead on Saturday. "We have veteran leadership, and we just tightened it up," forward Drew Miller said. "The last game, something happened we weren't very proud of, but it's not something we were like, oh no, here we go again, 2-0 with five minutes left. We know we're capable of playing a certain way, and we just went out and played that way." Apr 26 - 10:22 AM

Drew Miller has a nasty cut from the corner of his right eyelash across his cheekbone, but he hasn't been ruled out for Thursday's meeting with Boston.

"Right now, it's just dealing with the cut and the stitches and the soreness," he said. "Other than that, my eye is good, and when I got on the ice today, I felt pretty good."

Drew Miller (face) skated at practice on Wednesday.

He required approximately 60 stitches for two deep lacerations near his right eye and he considers himself very lucky. "Someone was looking over me on the ice last night," Miller said. "I don't know how I missed my eye. It's (laceration) right across that area." He was cut badly by the skate blade of Ottawa's Mark Stone on Tuesday night.

Drew Miller sustained two deep lacerations on his face in Tuesday's game versus Ottawa.

Mark Stone's skate caught Miller under his visor, but the good news is that it missed his eye. He wasn't able to return to the game.

Drew Miller has never scored an NHL goal on his brother Ryan Miller of the Vancouver Canucks.

The Canucks and Wings are facing-off against each other in Detroit on Sunday. "It's still fun, something that's pretty unique, playing against your brother," Drew Miller said. "There's no real trash talk, maybe just a jab at each other here and there when you can. The family enjoys it. There will be a lot of friends and family at the game."

Drew Miller wants to contribute more offensively this season.

Miller produced seven goals and 15 points in 82 games last year. "I want to definitely improve on my points from last year," he said. "I had a lot more chances to score last year ... just didn’t put the pucks in the net. That's something I've worked on this summer, shooting pucks, a quicker release." His career high for points in a season came in 2011-12 when he generated a total of 25 and it would be surprising if he hit the 20-mark in 2014-15.

Drew Miller potted two goals, including the game winner, in Detroit's 4-2 win over Ottawa on Sunday.

He has scored three of his four goals in his last three games. Miller is a dependable bottom-six forward for the Red Wings, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.

Drew Miller netted his first goal of the 2013-14 campaign on Saturday.

Miller has firmly established himself as a bottom-six forward with Detroit and has managed to chip in occasionally in that role. It still hasn't been nearly enough to make him worth owning in fantasy leagues and we don't think that will change.

Drew Miller's recently signed three-year extension with the Detroit Red Wings is worth $4.05 million.

Miller will come with a $1.35 million cap hit after earning an average of $837,500 annually with his old deal. "It feels great," Miller said about re-signing with Detroit. "I'm excited, my wife is excited, my family is excited. This is where I wanted to be. It's a great organization, great coaching staff, great bunch of guys. We have a lot of talent in the locker room, and I believe we'll be a very good team next year." He doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues, but he's a solid bottom-six forward.

Drew Miller has reportedly inked a three-year extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

Miller was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his two-year, $1,675,000 contract. He had four goals and eight points in 44 games this season.

The Red Wings have killed off nine straight Blackhawks' power plays heading into tonight’s Game 5 at the United Center and helping to give Detroit a 3-1 series lead over the No. 1 seeded Chicago team.

The Blackhawks haven’t converted on a man advantage since winning the opening game of the second-round series. "I think we’ve been able to do some good things, disrupt them up ice and make it hard for them," defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. "We know that they’re so talented, all they need is once chance and the puck’s in. We’ve been able to do a good job there, I think." The hot streak on penalty kills coincided with the return of left winger Drew Miller (broken thumb). He entered the series for Game 2, giving the Wings three options on the fourth line to use as penalty killers, in Miller, Patrick Eaves and Cory Emmerton. As Kronwall put it, "Millsie getting back in the lineup’s been huge for us."

Drew Miller's goal 8:20 into the second period turned out to be the game winner in Monday's 3-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Miller's goal wasn't nearly as pretty as some of the others scored Monday night, but that doesn't make it any less important. The gritty winger charged the net and swatted home the rebound of a Patrick Eaves shot only 30 seconds after Gustav Nyquist made it 1-0 for Detroit. Miller also logged a shift of 3:15 early in the second period, most of which was spent in the defensive zone and started with the tail end of a Blackhawks power play.

Coach Mike Babcock was very pleased to have Drew Miller back in the lineup.

Miller was out of the Detroit lineup since April 20 with a hand injury before returning Saturday. "I've got three penalty killers now on the fourth line," Babcock said. "Millsie knows how to play in all positions and he can really skate and get on the forecheck. He's not a big man but he's got a great stick and knows how to play, and so he makes us a much better team." Miller's return to the lineup bumped Todd Bertuzzi to the press box.

Drew Miller logged 12:07 minutes on Saturday in his return from a hand injury.

"I felt good," said Miller. "I was ready to go for sure, I skated a lot, and I felt fine, didn't have any issues." He had a shot on goal and a blocked shot. He also helped the Red Wings kill penalties in their 4-1 victory.
