ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Ryan Miller became the all-time leader in wins by a U.S.-born goaltender as the Anaheim Ducks beat the Washington Capitals 5-2 on Sunday night.

Miller, who missed 24 games due to a knee injury, made 23 saves in his first start since Dec. 9 against New Jersey. He got his 375th victory, breaking a tie with John Vanbiesbrouck.

Miller is 5-2-1 with a 2.64 GAA in 11 games during his second season as the backup to John Gibson, who has started 45 of Anaheim's 59 games.
