We’re an even 10 games into the 2014-15 calendar, and now that we have a break and an even number of games played by each, let’s take a quick glimpse at Calgary’s two goaltenders – Karri Ramo and Jonas Hiller.
Spookily, they’ve both played the same number of minutes – 313.
The Flames are 3-2-0 with Jonas Hiller in net and 2-2-1 with Karri Ramo in net.
Hiller’s played against Vancouver, St. Louis, Chicago, Winnipeg & Carolina.
Ramo’s played against Edmonton, Nashville, Columbus, Tampa Bay & Washington.
With Hiller in net, Calgary has allowed 9 goals and scored 14. 5 goals against were at even-strength.
With Ramo in net, Calgary has allowed 12 goals and scored 11. (It’s 12 if you count the shootout winner.) 8 goals against were even-strength.
Each goalie has allowed 4 power-play goals by the opposition.
Hiller: .948 overall, .966 even-strength. Career is .917, last three seasons were .910, .913 and .909.
Ramo: .914 overall, .934 even-strength. Career is .903, last season was .911. Previous seasons were in the KHL.
So far, even ignoring the difference in run support, the numbers say Hiller is currently better. But his numbers are insanely far above his usual level, suggesting he’s going to crash back down to Earth soon. Ramo through 5 games is basically what Ramo was last season.
