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

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
