Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Greg Wyshynski of PuckDaddy,
Miller is blue-collar. He’s workmanlike. He’s all the other words one uses to describe a player whose style of play wins more games than makes highlight reels.
Miller is also reserved. He’s introspective. He’s the last guy who’d ask for the attention that comes with being the best goalie in the Olympic tournament thus far; yet he talks to the media and fans everyday on every issue, ranging from pucks hitting him in the chest (“I’m really weak through the ‘S’,” he joked) to his romantic life.
“Yeah, despite my best attempt to not have that happen,” he said.
But Miller gets it. He understands that, in many ways, the Olympic experience isn’t contained to Vancouver; that he and his team are brining hockey to the casual fan back home.
