from Wes Gibertson of the Calgary Sun,
A former Swiss League standout, Berra finished with 42 stops in his NHL debut, surrendering just two tallies to the defending Stanley Cup champions and making his boss look like a genius for giving him his first start in one of the NHL’s most intimidating settings just one day after his callup from the AHL’s Abbotsford Heat.
“Honestly, I had a lot of thoughts. Everything went through my mind,” Berra told reporters after backstopping the Flames to their first victory in Chicago since March 16, 2008.
“After lunch, I always sleep, but today I couldn’t sleep. I was really nervous. But right before game when I was sitting in here, I said, ‘Just go out and play your game and have fun. You have nothing to lose.’ I put that excitement and nerves into positive energy.”
