Numbers for Nerds

As we all know, Ryan Miller will be starting in net against his former team, the Vancouver Canucks. Last season, he posted a 18-29-6 record in 54 games played with the Canucks. By the end of the season, he posted a .914 Sv% and 2.80 GAA. Now he's with the Anaheim Ducks, and although he has only played in 3 games thus far (1-0-2), he is currently at .946 Sv% and 2.13 GAA. It should be interesting to see how he compares to last season serving as the back-up goaltender in Anaheim.
