Kevan Miller is ready to move past his error in Game 6, which led to Montreal's game-winning goal.
"You've got to have a short memory," said the rookie defenseman. "I thought about it until about 12 o'clock (Monday) night. You've just got to turn the page and be ready to go." Boston's young defense has made some mistakes in the playoffs, but they have received strong performances from them as well. Miller will be looking to do the latter in Game 7 on Wednesday night.

Kevan Miller should be able to suit up for Game 1 of the opening round of the playoffs on Friday against Detroit.

He missed two games of practice this week due to the flu but was able to participate in the team's workouts on Thursday and looks good to go. Although the Bruins are epxected to go deep into the playoffs, we do not anticipate Miller being a key offensive contributor.

Kevan Miller feels ready to return from his undisclosed injury.

Kevan Miller got a maintenance game off Saturday.

He did not dress for Saturday's contest against the Flyers as the Bruins can afford to give players with nagging injuries a little time off to heal. Miller may sit out another game as the Bruins have clinched first place in the Eastern Conference.
Apr 6 - 8:32 AM

Kevan Miller has agreed to a two-year/$1.6 million extension with the Boston Bruins.

This is Miller's first one-way contract, which means he'll earn the same amount even if he gets sent to the minors. The 26-year-old defenseman has a goal and an assist in 16 games with Boston in 2013-14.
Jan 21 - 6:32 PM

Look for rookie defenseman Kevan Miller to take the place of Johnny Boychuk Saturday night against the Sharks.

Boychuk left the team Friday as his wife is expecting twins and Miller will suit up in San Jose. Miller was a healthy scratch Thursday night against the Kings and really has no fantasy value with only two points in 11 games while in Boston.

If Tory Krug can't play for the Boston Bruins today because of an undisclosed injury, look for Kevan Miller to replace him.

Miller was called up recently by the Bruins on an emergency basis. He's played in nine games for the Bruins and has contributed two points. Krug is iffy for today's game against the Winnipeg Jets after missing shifts in the final five minutes of the Bruins’ 3-2 overtime win against Nashville on Thursday. He was absent from practice Friday, with coach Claude Julien saying only that he was on a "maintenance day."

Kevan Miller was able to play Tuesday after he was hit from behind into the boards by Toronto's Dion Phaneuf on Sunday.

"I was pretty fortunate," Miller said. "Initially I was a little nervous. I was a little dazed. That's why they brought me off the ice; they wanted to double-check me. They cleared me right away." He skipped Tuesday's practice due to the flu, but he was fine to play against Calgary.

Kevan Miller was knocked a little woozy after he was hit from behind late in Sunday's win over Toronto.

However, coach Claude Julien thinks that Miller be OK to play in Tuesday's game at Calgary. Miller's first career goal held up as the game winner in a 5-2 victory over the Leafs on Sunday night. We'll keep him as active for now.
Mon, Dec 9, 2013 09:42:00 AM

Kevan Miller was brought up from the minors on Monday night on an emergency basis.

He skated in three games with Boston when Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid were injured. It's possible that one of them could have tweaked something, which led to him being brought back up. The team hasn't given a reason yet for his summoning, so stay tuned.
