Taylor to get first NHL start for Flames

The Calgary Flames will give Daniel Taylor his first NHL start in goal Monday night when they face the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena.

The 26-year-old Taylor's only prior NHL experience came during the 2007-08 season with the Los Angeles Kings. He relieved Erik Ersberg for the third period in a 7-2 loss to Dallas on March 29, 2008 and allowed two goals on 10 shots.

The Flames are dealing with an injury to starting goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff and have been using rookie Leland Irving and veteran Joey MacDonald in his absence.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
