With the Calgary Flames 4-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks tonight, Miikka Kiprusoff became the 27th goalie in NHL history to win 300 games. Number 34 made 34 saves against his former team, including “THE SCORPION”, which will certainly go down in Flames lore as one of the most bizarre calls from the TSN crew.

It’s hard to put into words the impact that Miikka has had on the Calgary Flames since he came herein 2003.

Regardless of what you think, it cannot be denied that Kiprusoff has had some amazing moments while wearing a Calgary Flames jersey.
