Joey MacDonald’s slick glove save on Brendan Morrow

Dallas Stars forward Brendan Morrow had a wide open net when he got the pass from Erik Cole out front.  Calgary Flames goalie Joey MacDonald did the excellent job of going post-to-post and getting his glove out to make the save.  Lucky for Morrow the Stars went on to win 4-3 and so the sheer robbery by MacDonald didn’t come into play.

To Make The Playoffs, Flames Need A Much Better Kiprusoff

from Eric Duhatschek of the Glob and Mail, ...the stats line on Kiprusoff is so uncharacteristically grim – just a 3.43 goals-against average, an .857 save percentage and only three wins in 10 decisions. Kiprusoff’s save percentage leaves him ranked 72nd of the 79 goalies which have played a game in the league this year and is far off his historical standards. Kiprusoff...
