News and notes from around the crease…

Back to Lack…again

Wash, rinse, repeat — Eddie Lack will once again be starting in goal for Vancouver tonight. He’ll get the nod against the Wild in Minnesota, his 14th straight start, and will look to build upon a pretty solid recent stretch of play — he’s won both of his last two games while posting a 1.00 GAA and .958 save percentage.

For Minnesota, Darcy Kuemper gets the start.

Ramo on fire

Calgary goalie Karri Ramo has been terrific since returning from a sprained MCL, and will make his third straight start tonight against Anaheim at the Saddledome.

Ramo is 2-0-0 in his last two starts, stopping 57 of 59 shots (.966 save percentage). He’s got a tall task ahead of him, though, as the Ducks are looking to make amends for the 7-2 whipping they received the last time they played in Calgary.

For the Ducks, Jonas Hiller will be in net.

    Ramo was playing well before he got injured as well, he should go into next year as the clear number 1 here.

    True, you could say his last 5-7 games have been decent and that he probably is #1 on the team.

    Jonas Hiller is below average at best
