Name me ONE shift in ANY game in which he took it off? Bet you can't do it!
Does making a horrific defensive zone turnover that leads directly to a goal count?
EDIT: Tongue-in-cheek doesn't work on this board, eh?

It's the first time since Oct. 10, 1973, that brothers accounted for a winning goal and a shutout on the same night.
Phil Esposito completed a hat trick with the go-ahead goal for Boston in a 6-4 season-opening victory for the Bruins at Vancouver. Down the West Coast in Los Angeles, brother Tony Esposito stopped all 25 shots he faced as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-0.

Glad Holland and company know just a tad bit more about this sport than I do.
Miller has been huge for us, playing very well on that third line and creating a ton of the chances himself. The great thing about a guy like Miller is that if injuries ever occur to the forward group, he can be slotted into almost any line and fill the void needed. A very versatile player. Keep up the good work!

Pretty much it.
There is a difference between making a mistake and not playing hard.
As long as mistakes like that aren't the norm and the player is giving the effort, I'm rarely going to go nuts on a guy for making a mistake or brainfart. Happen to pretty much everybody.
Miller is not overly physical and will never be a 30-goal scorer but he busts his rear end pretty much every play which is his most important quality for this team.
Good to see him get rewarded on the stat sheet some lately.

5 goals in his last 9 games. 2 points today vs. San Jose.

Oh the unfortunate gray hair. So weird looking for a guy his age.

He really wants to look like a normal 28 year old man, that's why he's playing so motivated right now!
Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

He is really doing well this season. He and Helm and Abby have been great. You can never have too much depth.
I love this dude. I have all but decided that the next hamster will be Drew.
RIP MicMichSteve. I was fortunate to have called you my friend.
