Miller will replace Chris Kreider, who will be with his family this weekend following the death of his grandfather. Additionally, defenseman John Moore reenters the lineup in place of Dan Boyle, who woke up Saturday with flu-like symptoms, according to coach Alain Vigneault. Boyle is day-to-day.
Vigneault also informed the media that forward Tanner Glass, who was diagnosed with the mumps virus, will remain away from the team until Monday. At that time he will be considered day-to-day. All players on the team have or will receive vaccination shots.
"All people who came to Tampa Bay should get themselves checked out because you don't know what could happen," Vigneault warned the local reporters.
Miller, 21, has skated in three games with the Rangers and has seven shots. He has six goals and 15 points in 18 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack. He will be playing in his first game with the Rangers since Oct. 12.
