For additional insight into the Western Conference Second Round series between the Anaheim Ducks and Calgary Flames, NHL.com has enlisted the help of Frederic Chabot to break down the action. Chabot will be checking in throughout the series.
Chabot was the goaltending coach for the Edmonton Oilers from 2009 to 2014. He played in the NHL for five seasons, spending time with the Montreal Canadiens, Philadelphia Flyers and the Los Angeles Kings.
With the Calgary Flames looking to swing momentum in their favor, coach Bob Hartley elected to start goalie Karri Ramo in Game 2 of their Western Conference Second Round series against the Anaheim Ducks.
With Ramo, who plays a much more aggressive style than Game 1 starter Jonas Hiller, the Ducks had to make an adjustment. But so did the Flames, according to Frederic Chabot.
"It's not really easy to do, when you have two goalies of very different styles it's tougher to make an adjustment and it showed early in the game" Chabot said. "With Ramo Calgary has to protect his back side. He's pretty good on the shooter, but he will challenge open chances more than the average guy, so they have to make sure they try to eliminate weak-side chances."
