Miller made 26 saves in Friday's 2-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
Pierre-Luc Dubois beat him from a bad angle late in the second period, but otherwise Miller stood tall in his first start of the season. The 39-year-old won't see a lot of work behind John Gibson, but his 2.35 GAA, .928 save percentage and four shutouts in 28 games last year for the Ducks indicates he can still take care of business when called upon.
Miller will guard the goal Friday against the Blue Jackets in Columbus, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Miller will give John Gibson a breather after Gibson handled each of the Ducks' first four games. The veteran netminder enters his 17th NHL season no longer as the mainstay between the pipes, but as a backup who is certainly capable of handling his allotted games as needed. He'll be tasked Friday with staving off shots from a Blue Jackets club that has been doubled up in the scoring department through its first three games of the season.
Miller will start in goal for Wednesday's home game versus the Kings, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Miller turned 39 years old this summer, and he's ready to serve as John Gibson's backup for another season. Considering how much the Ducks struggled last year, Miller was one of the league's premier backups with a .912 save percentage and 2.76 GAA en route to a 8-7-2 record. That was just a tick down from Gibson's .917, 2.84 and 26-22-8 marks, respectively. Expect Miller to get around 20 starts with the rebuilding club this season.
