Veteran Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff is off to a poor start with a 3.76 goals-against average, an .854 save percentage and a 1-3-1 record.

Calgary coach Bob Hartley, however, insists he is not worried. "I'll be very honest with you, Miikka Kiprusoff was one of the reasons why I decided to come to Calgary, and I still feel the same way," Hartley said. "If I was a betting man, I know that Miikka Kiprusoff is going to win way more games for the Calgary Flames than he's going to lose. He's one of the best goalies in the league. I feel very comfortable, very confident with Miikka, and I know that he's going to bounce back."
