Almost insulted as the crowd around him grew from a couple of reporters to a handful, Miikka Kiprusoff begged them not to grill him looking for reasons for his spectacular play this season.
“It’s nothing new. All the same,” he said Saturday morning in Columbus as he enjoyed a rare day off while backup Curtis McElhinney prepared for his third start of the season.
But it’s not the same old Miikka tending the twine for the Flames.
He hasn’t had a season this consistent since his Vezina Trophy-winning campaign of 2005-06.
Thankful for a team that is showing a renewed commitment to defence on most nights — Kiprusoff credits the skaters in front of him for the kind of statistics the Finn hasn’t enjoyed since he claimed the title of the NHL’s best goalie four years ago — the 33-year-old gets that same kind of praise from the guys who are tasked with protecting him.
