Miikka Kiprusoff is one of the most durable goalies in the NHL. Now, the Calgary Flames aren’t sure when they’ll get him back.
Kiprusoff, who has played in more than 70 games each of the past seven seasons, had to leave a 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night after two periods.
Jarome Iginla, who scored his first goal of the season, talked about what Kiprusoff means to Calgary.
“You take for granted how good he is and how consistent he is,” the Flames’ captain said. “He’s a big part of our team.”
Dennis Wideman had a goal and an assist, and Curtis Glencross and Mark Giordano also scored for Calgary. Mike Cammalleri had two assists.
Johan Franzen scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard made 19 saves. Howard also stopped Iginla on a penalty shot.
There was also a pretty good fight in the game when Jordin Tootoo and Steve Begin dropped the gloves at the end of the first period. You can check out the bare knuckle fight below.
