Defence suggests Dafonte Miller was caught stealing before fight with Theriault brothers

  Defence suggests Dafonte Miller was caught stealing before fight with Theriault brothers During his final day of testimony, Dafonte Miller fended off questions about his character, credibility and actions during the night he was allegedly attacked by two men wielding a metal pipe.Miller had spent three days giving his account of the incident before wrapping up his testimony on Friday under cross-examination by the defence.

DALLAS — J.T. Miller understands percentages.

The Vancouver Canucks winger knows the 7-10 split in bowling requires a powerful and precise delivery to convert the spare. Striking one corner pin in the proper spot, having it bang off the back wall and bounce or roll across the lane to take out the other corner pin is just as hard as it sounds.

The success rate is one out of every 145 attempts, which is a minuscule 0.7 per cent.

This is relevant because Miller knows 10-pin bowling — he once had 10 strikes while rolling a 278, which is 22 short of a perfect game — and he carried an impressive 200 average during summer leagues in his native East Palestine, Ohio.

He also knows how hard it is to win the Stanley Cup after enduring a pair of seven-game Stanley Cup Eastern Conference final series losses on home ice at New York and Tampa Bay in 2015 and 2018, respectively.

Miller has learned from the bitter past to bring resolve and relevancy to the present. A November to remember isn’t off to a great start for the Canucks with a 2-4-3 record, and it’s going to take more than proficiency on special teams. The club ranks 20th in even-strength scoring and getting dirty, greasy goals by getting to and staying in the hard areas has to be more than just talk.

After all, this could be a season-defining six-game road trip. It opens here Tuesday against the resurgent Stars, who are on a 9-1-1 charge, and continues with tough stops in Nashville, Washington, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Edmonton, and could either help ignite or douse the playoff-push mantra.

So a little bowling reference makes sense to keep the Canucks’ season from hitting the gutter. If Miller has converted a 7-10 split, he might be more than a timely trade acquisition who’s second in team goals (eight) and tied for second in assists (12) and points (20). So, about that split. Has he done it?

Stars 6, Canucks 1: The road to redemption turns into telling rout

  Stars 6, Canucks 1: The road to redemption turns into telling rout DALLAS — Travis Green said all the right things. So did Jamie Benn. The Vancouver Canucks coach was convinced the best way for his club to seek redemption Tuesday to open a defining six-game road trip was to not forget was occurred Thursday. “The loss is fresh in your mind,” he said of a 4-2 loss to the Dallas Stars at Rogers Arena. “We’re playing a team that has found their game and it’s a good challenge.” Benn countered that with one simple statement. “We’re a confident group and we know we’re not out of any game,” said the Stars captain.

Tuesday

Vancouver Canucks vs. Dallas Stars

5:30 p.m., American Airlines Center , TV: Sportsnet Pacific; Radio: Sportsnet 650 AM

“I have not, but the other one — the 4,7,10 — I’ve got a couple of those,” Miller said after Monday’s fast-paced practice to prep for those Stars, who play a heavy, turnover-inducing game. “I’ve been bowling my whole life. My dad got me and my brother our own balls that were built for us and it kind of made it way more fun.

“And then we were in a Wednesday league like three summers in a row — a couple of beers and a pizza — and it was perfect. I’ve missed the last two summers and I’m looking forward to getting back into it.”

The Canucks have to dictate play and strike early Tuesday. They’ve allowed the first goal in 14 of 21 outings and are simply wasting energy playing catchup on too many nights.

“This is a big trip,” stressed Miller. “We’re playing good teams and it’s a good time for our group to come together on and off the ice. We’re excited. We had this marked on the calendar from the beginning of the season, and it starts tomorrow (Tuesday) because we want revenge on the Stars.

Canucks Post Game: Captain crunched, Beagle bites, Benn's belief, goalie debate

  Canucks Post Game: Captain crunched, Beagle bites, Benn's belief, goalie debate DALLAS — Points to ponder on a night where it became clear that this is the grind of November and not the free-wheeling October as the Canucks were humbled 6-1 by the Stars on Tuesday: CAPTAIN CRUNCHED: ‘We’re going to remember this feeling and not have it happen again’ This is the first big leadership test for Bo Horvat. The centre was there to take the post-game heat and to his credit, he didn’t try to sugar-coat a collective performance that was poor. But he also didn’t offer up gloom-and-doom scenarios for a club that has won just once in the last seven games (1-5-1) and looks a little lost. .

Share All sharing options for: Pacers must pick between Ellis and Stuckey. Larry Bird needs to pick one because he can’ t have both. The team doesn’ t need two combo guards who need the ball in their hands, who shoot a low percentage from deep, who struggle defensively, and who have injury issues.

Thumbless Mike Miller bowled without a thumb and may have started all the bowlers using the thumbless bowling technique. Mike may be the prime example of wrist problems caused by that style of bowling . Thumbless Mike Miller defeats Norm Duke in the 1991 PBA National Championship.

“But you can’t get caught up in the moment, and we don’t want to be on the fourth game and scrambling. But we’re going to be a hungry team.”

Miller has been better than advertised; early success has the 26-year-old winger on pace for 32 goals, which would surpass a pair of 22-goal campaigns with the Rangers in 2015-16 and 2016-17.

His preseason target was 25 goals, but his strong puck presence through the neutral and offensive zones, ability to deflect pucks and work in concert with Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser has pulses racing.

Maybe it’s because Miller has played for tough coaches in Alain Vigneault and John Tortorella and has had tough personal and team setbacks. He’s also got some old-school strut.

Miller plays with an edge and can talk with one. And three more seasons at a US$5.25-million annual salary cap could be a bargain — even with surrendering that conditional first-round pick to the Lightning in the trade acquisition — if he plays a major role in getting the Canucks to the playoffs for the first time in five years.

“I’m trying to make myself the best player I can be, and from a leadership standpoint, I’m trying to improve in being a 200-foot player and playing big minutes,” he said. “I want to be a complete player and have been trying to work toward that my whole career. It’s something I’m focused on every day.”

Offensively, Miller is more concerned with getting shots than missing the net — he had five go wide Saturday against Colorado, but did direct 10 while going 8-for-13 in face-offs. His 51 shots are tied for fifth on the club, but his most pressing concern Tuesday is Dallas.

“We like the challenge,” he said. “When we’re playing that heavy and fast game, and taking care of the puck, we’re a really hard team to play against. But if we make low-percentage plays, they (Stars) can kill you.”
