Prior to last season, Ryan Miller spent his entire career with the Buffalo Sabres, Miller was drafted by the Sabres in the 5th round of the 1999 NHL Draft and eventually made his debut with Buffalo in 2002. Now, 13 years later, Miller will return to Buffalo for the first time since joining the Canucks last season. It should be a special game for him, and you can be certain it'll be a battle for Miller to keep his emotions in check.

In other Canucks lineup news, Sven Baertschi is back in after being a healthy scratch on Wednesday to make room for the return of Chris Higgins. Today, Baertschi will be skating with Bo Horvat and Jannik Hansen on the third line while Chris Higgins joins Jared McCann and Derek Dorsett on the fourth line.
