Hiller will be between the pipes for Game 3 of the Flames' playoff series against the Canucks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

Despite being pulled in Game 2 after allowing three goals on 29 shots, the Flames will once again turn to Hiller for Game 3 of the series. If he continues to struggle, Calgary may have to consider giving Karri Ramo a shot in net in Game 4.

Hiller made 26 saves Friday but was pulled in the third period of a 4-1 loss in Game 2.

Hiller wasn't particularly on his game Friday, but there was an empty netter included in those four goals. Calgary was not shy about switching goalies throughout the season so if Hiller has another rough outing Sunday, Karri Ramo may get a shot in Game 4.

Hiller will get the nod again on Friday for Game 2 of the Flames' playoff series against the Canucks, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Hiller will look to build on his excellent performance in Game 1 of the series, in which he allowed just one goal on 30 shots. The Flames lack depth at goaltender, so expect Hiller to be leaned on heavily throughout the Calgary's playoff run.

Hiller was great in his playoff debut with the Flames on Wednesday, allowing just one goal on 30 shots as the Flames beat the Canucks 2-1.

Aside from a Bo Horvat goal just past the midway mark of the second, Hiller was perfect in this one. He weathered several series of shot barrages from the Canucks, long enough for d-man Kris Russell to fire the game-winning goal past Eddie Lack with 30 seconds left in regulation.

Hiller is slated to start Wednesday's playoff opener against the Canucks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

Karri Ramo, who last suited up on April 4, is on track to back up (first-year Calgary Flame) Hiller, who logged 26 career playoff appearances while with the Ducks, recording a 12-12-3 record in that span with a 2.29 GAA and .932 save percentage. To date, Ramo has yet to see playoff action at the NHL level.

Hiller will not start Saturday's game against the Jets, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.

It was intimated earlier in the week that Hiller would receive every start for the Flames the rest of the way with Karri Ramo (lower body) unavailable, but coach Bob Hartley changed those plans after the team was able to clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Kings on Thursday. As a result, Hiller will pick up some rest heading into the postseason, while the newly recalled Joni Ortio starts a rather meaningless regular-season finale.

Hiller made 33 saves Thursday in a 3-1 win over the Kings -- his third straight win.

The victory was a huge one, as it eliminated Los Angeles from playoff contention while simultaneously securing Calgary's playoff spot. Hiller's won five of his last six outings, keying the Flames' run to a postseason berth.

Hiller will receive the start in goal Thursday against the Kings, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

It's probably the most important start of the season for Hiller, as the Flames sit just two points ahead of the Kings in the race for the third and final playoff spot in the Pacific division, and one point behind the Jets for the final wild-card spot. With a regulation win, Hiller can officially knock the defending champs out of playoff contention, but his numbers against the Kings don't exactly inspire much confidence. Though he's 2-1-0 over three outings this season, he's posted a weak 3.15 GAA and .911 save percentage. Jonathan Quick is expected to receive the start in the opposite net for the visitors.

Hiller stopped 22 of 24 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 win over Arizona.

A crucial win for the Flames, who are fighting tooth and nail to hold a playoff spot. Hiller is expected to be back out there for Calgary's final two regular-season games, which will come against the desperate Kings (currently two points behind the Flames) and Jets (one point ahead of the Flames), and are thus sure to be hotly contested affairs.

Hiller will start the final three games for the Flames, including Tuesday's tilt against Arizona, the Calgary Herald reports.

Hiller had a standout performance Saturday against the Oilers, so even if Karri Ramo wasn't hurt, Hiller would likely be the starter Tuesday. He's been playing well as of late, and with the Flames fighting for their playoff lives, he could be in line for a good week.
