Vancouver Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks will turn to veteran goalie Ryan Miller for Thursday's must-win Game 5 against the Calgary Flames.

The 34-year-old Miller has made just one start since injuring his knee in February, but stopped all 15 shots he faced after coming on in relief of Eddie Lack in Tuesday's 3-1 loss in Game 4.

Eddie Lack, not Miller, will get the start in goal for the Vancouver Canucks in Game 1 of their first-round series with the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

With Miller back from injury, there was a chance the veteran goalie could get the call. Canucks coach Willie Desjardins has played the issue close to the vest this week, before confirming Wednesday morning that Lack will get the nod.

Miller has a sprained knee.

Miller was run into by teammate Jannik Hansen in the crease during a game Feb. 22. It's unclear when he'll be back.

Miller tied a career-high with his sixth shutout of the season Saturday.

He stopped all 31 shots he faced as Vancouver beat Pittsburgh 5-0. He has a 2.35 goals-against average this season.

Miller continued his outstanding run away from home with 23 saves in Monday's 2-1 win at Florida.

Miller has stopped 112 of 114 shots for a 0.50 goals-against average over a four-game road winning streak.

Miller stopped 27 shots in his second straight shutout and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-0 on Friday night.

Miller, who beat Philadelphia 4-0 on Thursday night, earned his fifth shutout of the season and 34th of his career. According to STATS, it was Miller's first shutouts on consecutive days since 2012. He's 6-2-1 with a 1.44 goals-against average in his last nine games.

Miller returned from a two-game illness absence and made 30 saves to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

It was Miller's fourth shutout this season and 33rd of his NHL career. He returned to the net after missing two games due to illness. Miller improved to 5-2-1 with a 1.63 goals-against average in his last eight games.

Miller made 29 saves in Saturday's 4-1 win over Detroit.

Miller is 4-1-1 with a 1.66 GAA in his last six starts.

Miller made 31 saves Tuesday for the 'Nucks.

Miller is sizzling with a 1.48 GAA in his last four starts.

Miller followed his shutout Tuesday with another shutout Friday.

He's playing his best hockey of the season. The 12-year veteran has 51 saves over his last two shutouts.
