But looking at that graphic is only useful if you also watched the game and remember what each of those dots represents. You might otherwise be tempted to think that the Leafs were all over Miller. What it's actually showing us is a grand total of 3 shots from the slot (none of which I recall being totally open and uncontested like Pominville's goal was), a lot of point shots that he saw all the way, and a lot of attempted stuff-ins where all Miller had to do was keep his pads on the ice.
You can't contest the graphic!?!? It plainly shows that your statement about only having perimeter shots was wrong. There were perimeter shots from the D but there were just as many shots in close too! Kessel was firing some shots from in close. Miller was on fire and was a huuuuge part of that win!! Also the Leafs hit a few posts which is unfortunate but 10 games from now those shots will be goals! Posts are not uncommon so early in the season.
