Flames' Karri Ramo earns 1st NHL shutout in 2-0 win over Hurricanes

RALEIGH, N.C. - Karri Ramo made 22 saves in his first NHL shutout, and Mikael Backlund and Sean Monahan provided the offence in the Calgary Flames' 2-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night

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.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
