Miller's goal was the culmination of a barrage of pressure by Detroit in the final period, as the Red Wings outshot the Oilers 10-5 in the final period.
Danny Cleary gave Detroit a 1-0 lead just 4:33 into the game, and it stayed that way throughout the first period. But Ryan Jones struck quickly in the second period to tie the game for Vancouver. Jiri Hudler gave Detroit the lead back, but Jordan Eberle incredibly scored on a power play goal with just a second to go before the second intermission.
The Red Wings continue their four-game road trip when they take on the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday and the Calgary Flames on Thursday. They wrap up the road trip against the Nashville Predators on Dec. 26.
