Miikka Kiprusoff warms up before an NHL hockey game

Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff warms up before an NHL hockey game

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.

As soon as video is available I’ll add it here, until then, here’s Jermain Franklin’s Tweet:

It’s hard to put into words the impact that Miikka has had on the Calgary Flames since he came herein 2003. To the dismay of Jarome Iginla loyalists, it could be argued that Kipper has been the team’s most consistent player over the past 8 seasons, and the argument would certainly be strong. Regardless of what you think, it cannot be denied that Kiprusoff has had some amazing moments while wearing a Calgary Flames jersey.

Here is a playlist with some of his recent highlights:

About Greg Hounslow (558 Posts)

Greg is the founder of Red Mile Blog has been following the Flames through good times and bad since they arrived in Calgary in the early 80s. He has written hundreds of articles on the Flames since 2005 and considers himself an expert on hockey inconsistency and frustration. He shoots right and usually plays defence, but has been known to jump up in the rush. He is a 2-time CAHL men's league champion and knows the sweet taste of beer from a Cup.
