If Miikka Kiprusoff follows through on his plans to retire at the end of the season, Friday's victory over Anaheim will go down as his final appearance on home ice in Calgary.
Kiprusoff's career would end with a 197-89-4-33 record at the Saddledome and few of the outings will be as memorable as his last. He looked like vintage Kipper, stopping 32 of 33 shots to lift a poor Flames team over a vert strong Anaheim club. "It was an unbelievable feeling," Kiprusoff said of the crowd. "If you look at some other Canadian cities, it can be tough times for goalies. The crowd can be tough on them, but I've been lucky."
