SNAPSHOTS: Flames rebound with complete effort in win over Senators

A win over the Ottawa Senators only tells us so much about the Calgary Flames. But for the first time in a long time, everything seemed to just click for the Flames on Saturday afternoon. They didn’t need a heroic goaltending performance to steal the victory. David Rittich was solid, stopping 31 of the 34 shots he faced, but there was no need for him to be spectacular. ...

HOTN: David Rittich Delivers Again

Photo by Gerry Angus/Icon Sportswire via The Flames backup keeper was ON tonight, providing the Flames with a rock star performance. Highlight Of The Night Calgary Flames 1 - Toronto Maple Leafs 2 (OT) Let’s get the obvious out of the way: David Rittich deserved better. The Flames backup faced 39 shots, stopped 37 and had a 1-0 lead with 1:28 left on the clock. To add insult to injury, just prior to that the Flames could have iced the game 2-0, but Elias Lindholm missed an empty net and they rest is history. Rittich was on point the entire night and carried the...

He deserved better, although that’s not to say he was let down by any of his buddies. Rittich was questing Wednesday to become the first goaltender to blank the Toronto Maple Leafs in two...

The Flames badly needed a win after a brutal week that saw plenty of soul-searching around the Saddledome. It was an important victory for Rittich, too. It had been almost a full calendar year since Rittich was...
