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

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
