Alain Vigneault said last night that there were a lot of good parts to Miller’s game.
Adam Rotter: I think Miller has put himself into the top spot of players fighting for a roster spot on opening night. He went to the net, which is what Alain Vigneault is trying to emphasize, and wasn’t shying away from anything. I think his spot would be more secure if he hadn’t missed the early part of camp but while some guys may have impressed in practice, Miller made a big impact in a game and did a lot to help his cause last night.
