The Flames stretched their winning streak to three games by handing the Hurricanes their second straight shutout loss.
Backland scored his seventh goal of the season for the Flames, who notched their second power-play tally in 27 chances. Monahan scored his 13th goal midway through the third period to add some insurance.
Ramo improved to 8-8-3 as the Flames swept the two-game season games from Carolina.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
— Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock on rookie goaltender Garret Sparks, who made 24 saves in his first NHL start, a 3-0 win vs. Oilers
