When asked by the media after the game about his injury, Miller wanted to only address the hit.
"I'm not going to go into that. I just stuck around because I just wanted to say what a piece of [expletive] I think Lucic is," Miller said to the Buffalo News. "Fifty pounds on me and he runs me like that? It's unbelievable. Everyone in this city sees him as a big, tough, solid player. I respected him for how hard he played. That was gutless. Gutless piece of [expletive]."
Boston ended up winning the game 6-2. The last three goals were scored on the back-up goalie Jhonas Enroth as Miller was pulled after the second period due to "sore neck".
Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff said that Miller was suffering from a "little bit of a sore neck." He was also disappointed that there was only a minor penalty on Lucic.
"I thought it was a major," Ruff said. "I thought if it's open season on the goalies, then let's get at it."
