Thank God for the depth of defense in the Bruins’ system. Kevan Miller stepped in flawlessly when the injuries began to pile up. He has played in 10 games and has recorded a goal and an assist, but his play on the back end has given coach Claude Julien confidence to use him there in key situations.
Many people think he is the answer moving forward as the B’s may look to trade Adam McQuaid. Miller has played very consistently in front of goalies Tuukka Rask, Chad Johnson, and Niklas Svedberg. He doesn’t try to make the big play. He makes the safe play. That is all Julien wants his defenseman to do.
Miller may hang around for the long haul with Seidenberg out for the year. Bruins fans can back Julien’s decision because it looked like Miller has been up with the big club all season long.
