shutting down the Ducks in the final 3

CALGARY -- For the first time in nearly a decade, the Calgary Flames have an opening at starting goaltender and Karri Ramo solidified his position as one of the favourites Monday night. In his home-ice debut the 27-year-old Finn made 27 saves as the Flames, led by Matt Stajans goal and two assists, won 4-1 over the New York Rangers at the Scotiabank Saddledome. It was the third and final appearance of the pre-season for Ramo, who signed with the Flames this summer after playing the past four years in the KHL. His arrival in Calgary couldnt have been better timed after longtime Flames goaltender and fellow Finn Miikka Kiprusoff retired. It was the second straight strong outing for Ramo. Last Tuesday, the Finn made 21 saves in a win over the New York Islanders. "Ive felt better and better as the games have been going on," Ramo said. "Two and a half games, its getting yourself into game shape, getting your head into the games again." His last two games have helped him forget his inauspicious debut Sept. 14 when he gave up four goals on 17 shots in a half-game against Edmonton. "Edmonton was a hard game but that happens, its hockey," Ramo said. "Obviously, its nice to play first home game and get a win. Its a good feeling." It was a quiet night to begin with the Rangers testing Ramo just six times in the first period, none of them dangerous. That changed in the second as New York peppered him with 16 shots but only Marc Staal on a bouncing puck was able to swat one by the 2004 sixth-round draft pick. "In the second we were very sloppy and he came up with some key point-blank saves," said Stajan about Ramo. "Those are the saves that change momentum and keeps our team in it and we were able to get that third one and take over the game again." Tasked with making the decision of who will be Calgarys starter is coach Bob Hartley. The two other candidates are 33-year-old Joey MacDonald and Reto Berra, who will start the Flames final pre-season game on Wednesday. "Karri gave us a very big game. He was solid. He came up with the big saves at the right time. I felt he protected the front of the net very well," Hartley said. "The thing that I want to see from him is he felt confident on every shot that he faced." After he was drafted by Tampa Bay, Ramo spend parts of three seasons with the Lightning from 2006 to 2009, compiling a 11-21-10 record, 3.35 goals-against average and .895 save percentage. "Whats important about Karri is he has a certain advantage because he was in Tampa Bay a few years ago so hes got a feel for it," Hartley said. "This is not a surprise for him to come into Calgary and adjust. Obviously there is a period of adjustment from the KHL to this but its something he at least has a taste for." In a game in which both teams dressed a bunch of forwards that are fighting for jobs, the best line on either team was made up of three veterans -- Stajan between Curtis Glencross and Lee Stempniak. "Im excited. I want to be a guy that you can count on and be a leader for the young guys. I want to take advantage of any opportunity I get," said Stajan, coming off a bounce-back season last year. "Bob and his coaching staff gave me the chance to play key minutes and get my confidence back and they put trust in me right away where, for some reason, trust had been lost with the previous coaching staff. I just want to build on that and move forward and never be satisfied. I just want to get better and better." Stajan is in the final year of his contract that will leave him an unrestricted free agent at seasons end. Glencross finished with a goal, an assist and a fight. Defenceman Dennis Wideman added his fourth goal, tying him for the league lead. Scoring into an empty net for Calgary (4-2-0) was Lance Bouma. Staal had the lone goal for New York (1-2-0). Notes: The Rangers began a stretch of four games in five days. ... Notable scratches for New York, who have 39 players in camp, included forwards Ryan Callahan, Derick Brassard and restricted free agent Derek Stepan, who is still holding out. Missing from the blue-line were Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi. ... Notable Flames absentees were Mike Cammalleri and Jiri Hudler, who are both injured, and Sven Baertschi...

Assistant coach Glen Gulutzan said Thursday that Edler, who played Tuesday in Nashville, is out indefinitely.TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Sean Miller rose from his seat every time Roberto Nelson touched the ball and yelled "Shooter!" He could have been talking about his own team, too. Playing with confidence at both ends, No. 2 Arizona found its shooting touch and hounded Nelson, the Pac-12s leading scorer, into a rough night to race past Oregon State 76-54 on Sunday. "Overall, it was a very good team performance," Miller said. "We did it at both ends." Arizona looked hesitant against Oregon on Thursday night, its first game since forward Brandon Ashley went out for the season with a right foot injury. The Wildcats (23-1, 10-1 Pac-12) had no such trouble against Oregon State, finding answers for their shooting woes while dominating in nearly every aspect. Arizona shot 50 per cent for the first time in six games, had a 40-12 advantage in the paint and 15 assists with eight turnovers. The Wildcats also outrebounded the Beavers 39-24, including a 15-4 advantage on the offensive glass that led to 13 points. Aaron Gordon led Arizona with 17 points and fellow freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson provided his usual hustling spark while scoring 16. T.J. McConnell added 11 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Wildcats, who bounced back from their grinding victory over the Ducks with a terrific all-around effort for their 30th win in the last 31 games against the Beavers at McKale Center. "We played well tonight," McConnell said. "We were clicking on offence and I felt like we were playing well on defence." They sure were, particularly against Nelson. The Beavers (13-10, 5-6) rallied in the second half against Arizona State in their previous game behind Nelson, but had little chance against the athletic Wildcats, unable to spring him or chip away at Arizonas 10-point halftime lead. The nations 10th-leading scorer, Nelson was held to 10 points -- 12 below his average -- on 3-of-12 shooting. The rest of the Beavers did little to pick up the slack, shooting 8 of 24 in the second half and 39 per cent overall. Angus Brandt led the Beavers with 14 points. "Its disappointing that we didnt play better, especially since we have been playing better," Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said. "I dont think we came out with our best effort and I want to take the blame for that." Shooting has been Arizonas problem in recent weeks. The Wildcats shot 37 per cent over the past four games and hit 18 of 70 (25 per cent) from 3-point range.dddddddddddd Arizona won four of those five games behind its defence, particularly with big stops late. The Wildcats did it against Oregon in their last game as they struggled offensively without Ashley, shutting down the Ducks in the final 3 minutes to win 67-65 on Thursday after trailing most of the second half. Arizona had some shooting woes early against Oregon State, but rallied quickly behind Gordon and Hollis-Jefferson. Gordon scored in a variety of ways, getting a tip-in, a coast-to-coast drive after a steal and dropping in his first 3-pointer since Dec. 19, a no-hesitation shot from the corner. He had 11 points at the half. Hollis-Jefferson scored on a turnaround in the post to open the game and scored nine points by halftime behind his always-on-the-gas style. Arizona closed the first half on a 12-3 run and hit 16 of 29 shots to lead 37-27. Gordon opened the second half with an ill-advised toss that went off the top of the backboard in an attempt to dunk that sent Miller sprawling back in his seat in disgust. Gordon followed with the kind of move that has him projected as one of the top NBA draft picks when he leaves Tucson: a behind-the-back dribble through the lane that left his defender flatfooted and led to an easy layup. The rest of the Wildcats kept rolling, too, stretching the lead while showcasing what they can do even without Ashley in the lineup. "Today, we couldnt stop them," Robinson said. "This is a good team. Its fun to watch when you arent getting beat by them." Oregon State rallied behind Nelson against Arizona State on Thursday night before losing in overtime. The Beavers had no comeback in them this time, and Nelson struggled all night He scored 24 of his 26 points in the second half against Arizona State, but had a hard time finding room to shoot against Arizona. Hounded by Johnson and McConnell, who got plenty of help on screen switches, Nelson had four points on 2-of-8 shooting in the first half. He continued to labour against Arizonas pressure, going more than 10 minutes of the second half before getting off his first shot attempt. He missed all three of his 3-point tries in the game. "It was a team effort on Nelson and we did a great job on him," McConnell said. And just about everyone else. Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
