Hard to believe Karri Ramo going three weeks again before getting a start between the pipes.

Not after how the Calgary Flames goaltender fared in his first opportunity in seemingly an eternity Saturday night against the Los Angeles Kings.

Ramo, who’d been relegated to caddie for Reto Berra for most of November, finally stepped into the breach and came up with another strong performance in a 2-1 NHL victory over the Stanley Cup contenders.

It’s the second time Ramo has beat the Kings this season for the Flames (9-13-4) who had their dads in toe at Staples Center in L.A.

Funny thing is Ramo, the opening day starter who’s made just six starts since, looked like he would miss out on his chance after he left the morning skate in pain when he suffered a “stinger” when hit by a shot.

“A little bag of ice did the trick,” commented head coach Bob Hartley after the morning session.

Whatever the problem, Ramo showed no ill-effects, especially in the early-going when the Kings — who entered the game having tied a franchise record run of 11 games without losing in regulation — came out of the blocks with intent to try and kick the Flames team while they were down.

Ramo stood tall off the hop with a big stop on Jordan Nolan and shortly after by coming up with a couple of saves during a bang-bang exchange with Drew Doughty and Jeff Carter on the hunt to set the tone before the sellout crowd of 18,118 fans.
