Flames' Dan Vladar: Earns victory in relief
Vladar kicked out 11 of 13 shots in relief during Sunday's 5-4 victory over Anaheim.
The Flames were down 2-0 going into the first intermission, so they replaced starter Jacob Markstrom with Vladar for the beginning of the second frame. While Vladar didn't have the best of showings, Calgary was able to rally, handing him the win. He has a 14-6-5 record, 2.83 GAA and .895 save percentage in 27 appearances this season.

Vladar stopped 19 of 20 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

Vladar stopped 11 of 14 shots in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Coyotes.
Vladar gave up all three goals in the second period, though one came off his own player and the other was on a partial breakaway.
