There aren't many who would argue against the idea Miikka Kiprusoff is the greatest goalie ever to slide a Calgary Flames jersey over his upper-body armour. But in case you're one of those people who need statistics to sway your opinion, these final two games of the NHL regular-season provide just the opportunity for the 34-year-old backstop to convince you. Kiprusoff's next victory will be his 262nd as a Flame, putting him side by side with Mike Vernon on the franchise's all-time-wins list. If he starts and wins both games this week, the flexible Finn will own that honour solo after just six-and-a-half seasons of work. And what a workload he's had during his tenure in the Stampede City. Sunday's 2-1 victory over the Colorado Avalanche in Denver was his 70th start of the year, a benchmark he's reached in all six of his full seasons here.
