Miller said that there would be something wrong if he didn't use being put on the fourth line as motivation and said that he knew he had to work harder and get some "bad habits: out of his game. (NYR)
He said that he would like to be more consistent heading into the playoffs and that his last stretch of hockey hasn't been his best. (NYR)
Alain Vigneault said that he didn't put Miller on the fourth line to motivate him, saying that Miller was put there because he wasn't "making the plays he needs to make."
Vigneault added that against the Sharks, Miller "went out and made the plays and when you make the plays you play more."
