Called into service due to key injuries to fellow blueliners Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid, Miller was called up from Providence of the AHL and finished with 17:42 of ice time in his first game for the Bruins.
"Kevan Miller played extremely well," said Bruins coach Claude Julien. "He's a defensive defenseman who makes good strong plays; he did that tonight. He was strong. I really liked his game. I thought he was a poised player out there for his first real NHL game."
"I think overall I handled the puck pretty well. I tried to be physical when I could and just do the single plays so I'm happy with it," Miller said of his debut.
