from Scott Cullen of TSN,
This year, however, there has been a dramatic turnaround in the 33-year-old’s performance, as he has a 2.21 goals against average and .927 save percentage.
Considering Kiprusoff has faced 756 shots on goal so far this season, if he was still stopping pucks at a .903 clip, he would have allowed approximately 18 more goals than the 55 he’s let in so far this season, which would lift his goals against average to 2.94.
That’s a major impact to a Flames team that has scored 17 more goals than their opposition this season and it’s why I view Miikka Kiprusoff as making the primary difference for the Flames this season.
