According to Pat Steinberg of the FAN 960, the Calgary Flames will give goaltender Joey MacDonald a third straght start on Wednesday when the Flames host the Montreal Canadiens at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
MacDonald has received the last two starts for the Flames. He was the starting goaltender in Calgary's 4-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday and got the start again in the Flames' 5-4 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday. In three games this season, the Flames have a record of one win and two overtime/shootout losses.
Whether or not MacDonald will be the long range starting goaltender in Calgary is up for debate, but it appears now he is at least the starter in Calgary after Karri Ramo took the loss for the Flames in a 5-4 defeat on the opening night of the National Hockey League season.
On April 20, the Flames re-signed MacDonald to a one year contract worth $925,000. Last season he had a record of 8-9-1 with a 2.87 goals against average and a .902 save percentage in 21 games for the Flames.
