Well, if you remember, the game before he came back in was the game Miller lost Torts faith defensively at center and they blew a 3 goal 3rd period lead. Again, I think that's an oversimplification saying because they won, it ain't broke, and there's no need to evaluate.

No that's not possible (but I fully expected a similar response). Zone time won't affect save percentage, as virtually all shots on goal are from the one zone anyways. Even if it was, Boyle's possession stats trump Kreider's and Miller's, anyways.

I know:
