This comes on the heels of multiple outlets reporting Monday that the Maple Leafs were granted permission by the Flames to speak to Kiprusoff, who is likely to be dealt before the NHL Trade Deadline passes Wednesday.
Though no deal is in place, one could be worked together quickly with Kiprusoff’s blessing.
In 18 games this season, the 36-year-old is 6-9-0 with a 3.64 goals-against average and .868 save percentage.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
