Miller, who won't turn 20 until March, gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead just 1:29 in and then pushed their advantage to 3-1 in the second period with a rare power-play goal for the club. Marian Gaborik also scored, defenceman Marc Staal had two assists and Ryan McDonagh added an empty-net goal to give the Rangers their second win in three games.
New York lost in Miller's NHL debut Tuesday at New Jersey.
The Rangers have an eight-game winning streak over the Islanders at Madison Square Garden, outscoring them 35-11.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
