Ramo & Gio leads Calgary Flames to win over New Jersey Devils

Six months ago, the Calgary Flames did everything to avoid the comparison. With Miikka Kiprusoff’s retirement, the Flames needed a new No. 1 goalie, and Karri Ramo’s arrival meant a new product of Finland’s goalie factory gaining the lion’s share.

Calgary Flames zap Tampa Bay Lightning

Ramo’s revenge. Karri Ramo tried to play down such talk, but those around the Calgary Flames netminder think he was under-stating what it meant to him.

Calgary Flames edge New York Rangers

Karri Ramo probably doesn’t have a future in print journalism. One-goal games? Those are the tough ones for the keyboard-pounders up in the press-box, but Ramo loves ’em. In fact, after Friday’s 4-3 victory over the New York Rangers at the Saddledome, the Calgary Flames’ puck-stopper insisted those are his favourite contests to be a part of. “I find that it’s the most...

Karri Ramo likely starter after win

The No. 1 netminder job for the Calgary Flames wasn’t going to just be handed to Karri Ramo. He had to earn it. Mission accomplished.
