Ramo will start in goal against Dallas on Monday. Ramo's season has been a model of inconsistency, which has included a trip to the minors. Ramo has allowed two goals or less in seven of his 15 games this season, but has allowed 4 goals or more in six of those games. With the Flames taking on the top-scoring team in the league on Tuesday, expect Ramo to turn in one of the latter-mentioned performances.
Ramo stopped 19 of 21 shots in Friday's overtime loss to Arizona. It's been an up-and-down year for Ramo, who sees his save percentage dip below .900 (.899). The 29-year-old, who has started 12 straight for Calgary, falls to 6-8-1 on the season. He's been decent at times, but Ramo really hasn't stolen any games this season, so if you're looking for explosive rate stats or strong shutout totals, Ramo simply isn't going to cut it.
Ramo will make his 12th consecutive start Friday night, facing the Coyotes on the road, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. Ramo owns a 5-5-0 record, 2.71 GAA and .910 save percentage in November, numbers that are actually pretty good considering the Flames have had a tough time trying to score goals this season -- they rank 21st in that category with 2.41 scores per game.
Ramo will protect the net Tuesday against the Ducks, Randy Sporak of the Calgary Sunreports. Ramo has struggled in net on the whole this season, postign a 3.04 GAA and .901 save percentage through 13 appearances. He was good in his last start, however, holding the Blackhawks to one goal on 19 shots. He'll attempt to post another solid performance Tuesday, facing a Ducks team that continues to struggle offensively for the most part (just 1.76 goals per game) this season.
Ramo stopped 18 of 19 shots in Friday's overtime win over the Blackhawks. It was the 10th straight start for Ramo, who now now won three of his past four games. The 29-year-old has been very well of late and has boosted his save percentage into the .900 range (.901). Keep him rolling, as he's starting every night for the Flames right now and has allowed three goals or less in five straight outings.
