Matt Stajan had a goal and two assists and Karri Ramo made 27 saves to lead the Calgary Flames to a 4-1 preseason win over the New York Rangers on Monday night. Calgary also got goals from Curtis Glencross, Dennis Wideman and Lance Bouma. Marc Staal scored for New York and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 24 shots. Glencross opened the scoring with a wrister at 6:05 of the first and Wideman added another 6:18 into the second. Stajan assisted on both goals. Staal scored a power-play goal with 3:48 left in the second to get New York within 2-1, but Stajan's slap shot at 12:11 of the third restored the two-goal margin. Bouma closed it out with empty-netter with 5 seconds remaining.

Ramo made...

Calgary Flames: Sean Monahan strong in faceoff circle

If Sean Monahan wins a full-time job with the Calgary Flames his ability to win faceoffs will be a big reason for it.

Who’s In Goal For The Flames?

from Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun, It was the No. 1 question for the Calgary Flames. It still is. With just two NHL pre-season games left on their slate, the Flames puck-stopping situation — specifically, who inherits the starting job from just-retired Miikka Kiprusoff? — remains unsettled. “Still don’t know,” Flames head coach Bob Hartley said after...
