The Calgary Flames defeated the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday, but that could come at a devastating price.
According to the Flames Twitter account, Kiprusoff will be “re-evaluated tomorrow.”
Kiprusoff has been a mainstay in the Flames net since the 2003-04 season, but specifically in the playoffs, when he backstopped Calgary to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Kiprusoff has played a minimum of 70 games in each of the last seven seasons since the 2004-05 lockout and hasn’t posted fewer than 35 wins in each of those seasons.
The good news for the Flames was Jarome Iginla, 35, finally broke his goose egg in the goals column.
His first goal of the season gave Calgary a 1-0 lead early in the opening period.
Meanwhile, the Wings, struggling at 10th in the Western Conference with a 4-4-1 record, continue to be “a work in progress,” head coach Mike Babcock told the Calgary Herald.
