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.
Still, the organization — and especially Ramo, himself — felt it taboo to put the two netminders in the same category. After...
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Karri Ramo made 31 saves to record his second NHL shutout as the Calgary Flames topped the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Monday night.
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.
Ramo’s return to Florida to face the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team he bolted from without much resistance some four years ago, was a roaring success, thanks to a dream offensive start and a 31-save performance in Calgary’s...

Curtis Glencross scored twice in the final two minutes, including an empty-netter with 16 seconds left for the Flames.
Ondrej Palat scored with 4:04 left in the second period...
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...

The No. 1 netminder job for the Calgary Flames wasn’t going to just be handed to Karri Ramo.
He had to earn it.
Ramo the former Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender won’t likely replace the retired Miikka Kiprusoff in the hearts of Flames fans but looks to be the man who’ll take over the starting goalkeeper duties when the regular season opens.
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.

The Calgary Flames signed Finnish goaltender Karri Ramo on Friday.
Ramo joins Miikka Kiprusoff, Reto Berra and Joey MacDonald as goalies under contract with the Flames.
Calgary awaits a decision from Kiprusoff on whether the 36-year-old veteran will retire or return to the NHL for the final year of his contract.
