Jonas Hiller G CGY 8 Hrs

Hiller had a quiet night Saturday as he only had to make 17 saves in a victory over Edmonton.

Hiller came into the game with a career 15-4-1 record versus the Oilers so one might say the game went according to script. Hiller is having a solid season for Calgary since signing as a free agent but not every game will be a layup from here on out.

Hiller will receive the start in goal Saturday against the Oilers, Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald reports.

While the Oilers haven't resembled a total doormat in recent weeks, Saturday's outing still represents a favorable matchup for Hiller. The goalie owns a career 15-4-1 record against the Oilers, and has been playing stellar since taking the net back from Joni Ortio. He's turned in consecutive one-goal outings to improve his season GAA to 2.37 while upping his save percentage to .914.

Hiller allowed just a first-period Zach Parise goal on 32 shots, but that was enough in Thursday's 1-0 loss to Minnesota.

That's Hiller's second consecutive one-goal outing, and it marks his highest save percentage in a start (.969) since he shut out Carolina way back on Oct. 23.

Hiller will be back in the crease for Thursday's game against the Wild, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Hiller will earn his third straight start on the strength of stellar one-goal performances against both the Ducks and Sabres. With young upstart Joni Ortio back in the minors, Hiller should have plenty of leash as the Flames' No. 1 goalie ahead of Karri Ramo.

Hiller faced just 18 shots Tuesday, turning aside 17 in a 4-1 victory over Buffalo.

It's the 12th straight loss for the Sabres, and like most of them, it was pretty easy for the opposition. Hiller was rarely tested while ending a stretch of four straight appearances without a win. He's been inconsistent this year, but still represents the top starting option in net for the Flames.

Hiller will be between the pipes on Tuesday against the Sabres, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Hiller will get the nod as expected out of the All-Star break, and will have the benefit of facing the offensively challenged Sabres. He's coming off of a six goal outing in his last start, but the 32-year-old should be able to bounce back against a weaker opponent.

Hiller stopped 14 of 15 shots in relief of Joni Ortio Wednesday in a 6-3 loss to the Ducks.

Hiller hadn't played in four games, as Ortio wasPlaying well before Wednesday. It'll be interesting to see who gets the first start after the All-Star Break, but Hiller needs to improve his play to warrant consideration for full-time starter in Calgary.

Hiller ended up on the wrong side of a goal-fest Friday, dropping a 6-5 decision to the visiting Panthers.

This wasn't a very pretty performance for the Swiss netminder, who coughed up the lead on three separate occasions before Tomas Fleischmann hammered the final nail in the coffin with 3:09 remaining. After rattling off four straight wins in late December, Hiller has dropped three straight decisions -- allowing 10 goals on 58 shots during that span -- and should probably be used sparingly given his recent inconsistency.

Hiller will receive the start in goal Friday against the Panthers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.

It's possible the Flames could turn to Hiller for both ends of their weekend back-to-back, as backup Karri Ramo suffered an upper-body injury Wednesday that will keep him out through at least next week. The Flames will cross that bridge when it comes, but for Friday's slate, Hiller looks like he could be a worthy lineup choice, as he'll be facing a presumably fatigued Panthers squad finishing off the second half of a back-to-back set. Moreover, the Panthers don't exactly light it up offensively, as they rank just 26th in goals per game and ice the league's third-worst power play.

Hiller was mediocre in relief of Kari Ramo on Wednesday, giving up two goals on just nine shots in a 3-2 loss.

Ramo left the game at the midway point of the second period after being run into, forcing Hller into the game. Hiller had started the last 10 games for the Flames and was set to enjoy a night off, but was thrust into action unexpectedly and his poor performance certainly reflected that. Look for him to bounce back in his next start, likely on Friday against the Panthers.
