Well the Flames probably didn’t deserve to win the game last night, despite out-shooting their opponent for the first time this year. Nashville had better chances and had possession of the puck for the majority of the game.
But after Ramo made that incredible 2-on-1 save, you just got the feeling that nothing after that point was going to get by him. Remember those games with Kiprusoff? When he would make that one save that just dialed in his focus and you just knew he wouldn’t be beat for the rest of the game? Well that’s what it was like after that moment with Karri Ramo. He stopped all remaining shots as well as all three in the shootout to secure the Flames’ second win of the year.
Calgary was 1/3 on the PP and killed off two Nashville power plays, so if there was a reason second to Ramo, that was it.
I also thought that Devin Setoguchi played his best game of the year. Without harping on him, I got to focus most of my anger on the useless pylon that is Matt Stajan.
