Hiller was shelled for five goals on 37 shots in a 6-3 loss to the visiting Ducks on Friday. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.Making 32 saves is no small feat, but the five goals against simple weren't good enough on this night.

Hiller will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Ducks, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald reports.Hiller has been rather inconsistent throughout February, alternating wins and losses over his last five outings.

Hiller made 26 saves but surrendered the game-winning goal to Mikko Koivu in overtime in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Wild.Hiller had given way to backup Karri Ramo for the start in both of the Flames' previous two games, but he's still unquestionably the team's top goalie, even after Wednesday's so-so showing. While Hiller won't stand on his head most nights to carry his team to the win column, he almost always gives Calgary a chance every night. With a 19-16-3 record and decent ratios, Hiller ranks solidly in the middle of the pack among fantasy netminders.

Hiller (illness) came on in relief of Karri Ramo in the second period of Monday's game against the Bruins, stopping all 16 shots he faced to lead the team to a comeback victory.Karri Ramo made his second straight start after Hiller felt a bit under the weather in recent days, but quickly fell into a 3-0 hole in the first minute of the second period before coach Bob Hartley pulled the plug. Hiller, who seems to be fully healthy from whatever was ailing him, then entered the crease and was flawless while the Flames' attack rallied for three unanswered goals to send the game to overtime. Hiller would then capture the win in the extra period when T.J. Brodie scored with two ticks remaining. Look for Hiller to make his next start Wednesday against the Wild, and quite likely, for the Flames' next several games thereafter.

Hiller was feeling under the weather at the Flames' morning skate and will be limited to backup duties behind Karri Ramo for Saturday's game against the Canucks, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.It doesn't sound like Hiller's illness is significant enough to necessitate the recall of an extra goalie, so it mostly amounts to a day off for the goalie. He had started every game for the Flames since the All-Star break and probably was due for a rest anyway, as he'd given up four-plus goals in two of his last three turns. Look for Hiller to return to the net Monday against the Bruins.

He's been curiously inconsistent of late -- over his last 10 games, he's allowed two or fewer goals seven times, but has given up a total of 15 goals in the other three contests.
