If part of the motivation for the Ryan Miller trade was to put him in position with a contender, the goaltender seems to have found the right fit.
The St. Louis Blues won again last night, albeit without Miller in goal. It was Brian Elliott who got the start in a quick turnaround for the Blues and picked up the shootout win, 3-2, over the Minnesota Wild in St. Paul.
Still, the Blues are now 5-0 since they made the trade with the Buffalo Sabres and sit on top of the league standings with 94 points, one ahead of Anaheim.
Miller is 4-0 with the Blues, his last outing a 2-1 win at Colorado where he made 26 saves.
