When you have a knee injury, it’s always uncertain what’s going to happen. It took a lot longer than I hoped. But there was satisfaction tonight. The boys played a great game. I was able to get back in. I had a few clunky moments, but I worked through it. It’s quite a nice feeling to get the win.”Miller, 38, is 5-2-1 with a 2.64 GAA in 11 games this season. He is in his second season in Anaheim after stints with the Sabres, Blues and Canucks.
