    Flames' David Rittich: Back to full strength

    According to goalie coach Jordan Sigalet, David Rittich has fully recovered from the elbow injury he was dealing with prior to the NHL halting its season in mid-March, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.Rittich was struggling prior to the break, suffering three straight losses while posting an ugly 4.05 GAA and .882 save percentage, so perhaps he'll perform better whenever the NHL's 24-team playoff gets underway since he'll no longer be dealing with a nagging injury. The Calgary Flames will take on the Jets in a best-of-five series if and when teams are cleared to return to play.

    Flames' David Rittich: Tough day in Tampa

    David Rittich made 29 saves in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Lightning.The 27-year-old netminder may have lost his focus after Tampa's first two goals both came on deflections while the Calgary Flames were shorthanded, giving Rittich little chance at either. He wraps up a shaky February having allowed at least four goals in half of his 10 outings while posting a 4-4-1 record with a 3.65 GAA and .887 save percentage.

    Flames' David Rittich: Gets back on track

    David Rittich stopped 27 of 29 shots in Sunday's 4-2 victory over Detroit.Rittich was coming off of back-to-back losses in which he'd allowed four goals in each outing. He was solid Sunday against the Red Wings, logging a .931 save percentage and being thwarted only by Detroit's Dylan Larkin, who beat him twice. A tidy stat line against the lowly Wings isn't necessarily a sign of a turnaround, and Rittich still owns a sub-.900 save percentage for the month of February, but it's something the 27-year-old can build on.
