Karri Ramo stopped 31 of 33 shots in Sunday's 3-0 loss to Anaheim.

It's pretty clear that through two games, the Flames have been overwhelmed by the Ducks. Calgary turned to Ramo on Sunday after being forced to pull former Duck Jonas Hiller in back-to-back starts. The Flames will be disappointed to go down 0-2 in the series, but they did show that they could keep up with the Ducks in the second half of the game. It will be interesting to see if Bob Hartley goes back to Hiller or if he will give Ramo another shot to prove himself. Calgary isn't in a good spot, but they aren't in trouble yet. The picture will look more bleak if they fail to collect a win on home ice in Game Three on Tuesday night.

Frederik Andersen stopped all 30 shots he faced in Sunday's 3-0 win over Calgary.

Andersen's perfect postseason continues. The Ducks goaltender is now a perfect 6-0 this postseason and what's even more impressive is the fact that he has just allowed one goal in this second round series so far. The 25-year-old has allowed more than two goals just once in the 2015 playoffs. Anaheim has looked like a solid team from top to bottom in the postseason, and it wouldn't surprise anyone if their journey doesn't end anytime soon. Andersen looks like the fantasy goalie to own in the playoffs.

The Calgary Flames dropped a 3-0 decision to the Anaheim Ducks in Game Two of their best-of-seven series.

The young Flames squad overwhelmed Vancouver in the first round but they have been unable to get anything going against a much more complete Anaheim team. Calgary has been outscored 9-1 in the first two games of the series, and they will need to find the back of the net more frequently at home if they hope to extend the series. Sean Monahan finished the night with a minus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and one shot on goal.
May 4 - 12:51 AM

Corey Perry picked up two assists in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Calgary Flames.

The Ducks now have a commanding 2-0 lead in the series and they won both games in impressive fashion. Perry's great postseason run continues. The 29-year-old picked up a pair of primary assists on goals from Hampus Lindholm and Nate Thompson. Perry now has 13 points in the 2015 playoffs, which leads all skaters. The Ducks are a perfect 6-0 in the playoffs, as they swept through Winnipeg in the first round and are taking care of Calgary so far in the second.
May 4 - 12:48 AM

Devan Dubnyk allowed three goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Dubnyk helped propel Minnesota to a first round upset over St. Louis but he hasn't had the same kind of success in round 2. The Hawks have scored seven goals in two games against Dubnyk in this series. The 28-year-old will have to steal a game or two if the Wild are going to get back into this series. Minnesota now trails 2-0 after two games in Chicago, but they will be relieved to be heading home for Games Three and Four. On a different note, Dubnyk managed to pick up an assist on Matt Dumba's third period goal.
May 3 - 11:35 PM

Corey Crawford stopped 30 of 31 shots in Chicago's 4-1 win in Game Two against Minnesota.

Crawford was fairly good in this contest, but he will definitely want to have Matt Dumba's goal back. It's been an interesting postseason for Crawford, as he has already lost the starting job once but regained it at the end of the first round. The 30-year-old has gotten the job done for the most part since taking back his starting gig, but it will be interesting to see how far the Hawks can go with spotty goaltending. For now, Crawford will continue to be their guy unless he gives them reason to go back to Scott Darling.
May 3 - 11:30 PM

Matt Dumba scored a goal in Minnesota's 4-1 loss to Chicago on Sunday night.

The Wild were trailing 2-0 when Dumba scored a power play goal to cut the Chicago lead to one in the third period. Unfortunately for Minnesota, that's as close as they would get. Ryan Suter and goaltender Devan Dubnyk picked up the assists on Dumba's goal. The Wild now trail 2-0 in the series, but they won't be in real danger until they lose a game on home ice.
May 3 - 11:26 PM

Patrick Kane scored a pair of goals in Chicago's 4-1 win over Minnesota on Sunday night.

Kane finished the night with an impressive stat line of two goals, a plus-2 rating, and four shots on goal. His goal with 20 seconds remaining in the first period extended Chicago's lead to 2-0, while his second goal was put into an empty net. The 26-year-old now has five goals and 10 points in eight playoff games in 2015. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp also scored for the Blackhawks, who now lead their best-of-seven series 2-0.
May 3 - 11:23 PM

Raphael Diaz won't be playing in Sunday's Game Two tilt against the Anaheim Ducks.

Diaz has been dealing with a lower body injury but it's unclear if he is sitting out because he isn't ready to return or because the Flames would rather dress six other defensemen.
May 3 - 10:09 PM

Drew Shore will be a healthy scratch in Sunday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Micheal Ferland will also be scratched but he is dealing with an injury. Mason Raymond and David Wolf will take their place in Calgary's lineup. The Flames will look to shake things up after being blown out in Game One on Thursday.
May 3 - 10:06 PM

Micheal Ferland will not play in Sunday's game two tilt against Anaheim.

Ferland was on the ice for the pre-game warmup, but he ultimately wasn't fit enough to suit up in this game. David Wolf will replace Ferland in the lineup.
May 3 - 10:02 PM

James Wisniewski and Korbinian Holzer are expected to be healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Calgary.

Joining them in the press box will be black aces Ryan Faragher, Mark Fistric, Max Friberg, Josh Manson, Jaycob Megna, Stefan Noesen, Andrew O'Brien, Michael Sgarbossa, Shea Theodore and regulars Chris Wagner, Jiri Sekac and Tomas Fleischmann.
May 3 - 9:40 PM

Tomas Fleischmann, Chris Wagner, Jiri Sekac are expected to be healthy scratches in Sunday's game against Calgary.

Not many teams are deep enough to sit players like Fleischmann and Sekac, but the Ducks are. Anaheim's forward lines should look something like this: Maroon-Getzlaf-Perry, Beleskey-Kesler-Silfverberg, Cogliano-Rakell-Palmieri, Etem-Thompson-Jackman.
May 3 - 9:35 PM

Carey Price allowed six goals on 24 shots in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

On paper, it looks like Price struggled in this game but four of Tampa Bay's goals were scored on the man-advantage. The Canadiens have now lost the first two games of the series, but what's even more concerning is that the series will now shift to Tampa Bay. Price is the least of Montreal's worries, as they have now been held to two goals or less in six consecutive playoff games.
May 3 - 8:58 PM

Ben Bishop stopped 27 of 29 shots in Sunday’s 6-2 win over Montreal.

The Lightning have a commanding 2-0 lead in the series and they will return home to try and finish the Canadiens off. A big reason why Bishop and his teammates were able to blow out the Canadiens in Game Two is because they dominated the special teams battle. The Lightning killed off all three of Montreal’s power plays and they converted on four-of-eight of their own chances on the man-advantage. Bishop's postseason record now improves to 6-3.
