Johnson was mediocre Tuesday, allowing three goals on 21 shots, but came away the winner in overtime against Buffalo.

After Brian Elliott got roasted for 10 goals in a pair of losses to the rival Oilers to start the season, Johnson has helped the Flames to three of a possible four points in back-to-back starts. Despite Tuesday's victory, Johnson was far from great in this one, so it wouldn't be surprising if head coach Glen Gulutzan turns back to Elliott -- who the Flames brought in from St. Louis in the offseason to be the man in Calgary -- at some point in the near future. Then again, Johnson (a career backup) hasn't lost in regulation yet, so perhaps Gulutzan will continue rolling him out there. The Flames have two more home games against Carolina and St. Louis before hitting the road, so owners of both netminders will want to stay tuned to who gets the nod for those contests.
