3. The Flames, in an effort to shore up their goaltending, signed former Anaheim Duck Jonas Hiller in the offseason, and he has been solid for Calgary, going 8-4-1 with a 2.30 GAA and .922 SV%. Despite how his career in Anaheim ended, Hiller was still productive for the Ducks, winning 162 regular season games and another 12 contests in the postseason in six seasons. How much has he helped the situation in net for the Flames?

Len: I’ve already mentioned the astounding October Jonas Hiller had to help carry the Flames through while the young stars were putting their game together.  I think it’s also fair to give Hiller some of the credit for Giordano’s elevated level success because Gio has faith that if he does make a mistake, Hiller’s got his back.
