Joey MacDonald will start the final game of the season for the #Flames tonight.
No farewell for Miikkaa Kiprusoff tonight as MacDonald will start for the Flames. I don't think his numbers are really necessary. The Flames are bad, the Blackhawks are really good. It could not be more black-and-white, don't start MacDonald. If you think they can pull out a miraculous win that can win you the championship by starting MacDonald, then more power to you!
Joey MacDonald gets the start for the #Flames tonight.
MacDonald allowed just one goal on 35 shots in a win over the Wild on Sunday. He has won four out of his last five starts, but he has a tough matchup vs. the Blues tonight. Not someone you can trust at this point in the season.
Joey MacDonald gets the start in net for the #Flames tonight.
MacDonald allowed eight goals on 39 shots against Edmonton in his last start. His last win was on March 27th against Colorado, who he faces tonight. He is 1-1-0 with a 4.05 GAA and .879 SV% vs. the Avalanche this year.
MacDonald has not started since March 18th, he allowed four goals on 24 shots in a 4-3 loss to Dallas. He could be a decent spot start tonight against an Avalanche team who have lost six of their last seven games.
MacDonald will start and will be backed-up by Danny Taylor because Kiprusoff is back in Calgary with his wife as they welcome a new baby boy. MacDonald lost his last start allowing two goals on 21 shots on March 11th. He has a decent matchup tonight vs. the Stars.
MacDonald will get his fifth start tonight vs. Colorado.
MacDonald has played well as a member of the Calgary Flames. He has won two of his last three with a 2.33 GAA and .920 SV%, the most important thing is he is giving the Flames a chance to win. He has a solid matchup tonight vs. Colorado however I'm sure he wishes Matt Duchene was not returning to the Avalanche lineup tonight.
MacDonald will try and extend his winning streak to three games tonight when the Flames take on Minnesota. MacDonald has been good in his time in Calgary and could be worth a spot start with a good matchup. However it is hard to recommend him against the WIld.
