Rittich will start Thursday vs. the Red Wings.

Rittich stopped 21 of 22 shots in the Flames win over the Flyers on Tuesday. It was a nice bounce-back game for Rittich, who gave up six goals in Vegas in his previous outing. The 27-year-old has been inconsistent to begin 2019-20, allowing at least four goals in three starts and less than two goals in the other three starts. Overall, he is 3-2-1 with a 2.80 GAA and .912 SV% and is a must-start against the Red Wings on Thursday.

Rittich will start Tuesday vs. the Flyers.

Rittich gave up six goals on 30 shots in the Flames’ loss in Vegas on Saturday. Cam Talbot made his Flames debut in a loss to the Sharks on Sunday, so they will come back to Rittich on Tuesday. The 27-year-old netminder is 1-0-1 with a 2.00 GAA, .946 SV% and one shutout in two starts in Calgary so far.

Rittich will start in Vegas on Saturday.

Rittich has been outstanding to start the season as he refuses to let Cam Talbot see the ice. The 27-year-old owns a .929 SV%, a 2.46 GAA, and a 2-1-1 record through his first four games. He'll see plenty of work tonight against a Golden Knights team that's averaging 34 shots per game.

Rittich will start Tuesday vs. the Kings.

Rittich stopped all 34 shots that he faced in the Flames shutout win over the Canucks on Saturday. It was a strong outing for Rittich, who will need to play well to fend off Cam Talbot for starts. He makes for a strong option vs. the Kings, who surprisingly scored five goals in their season debut—a 6-5 loss in Edmonton. Rittich was 2-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA, .957 SV% and one shutout vs. L.A. last year.

Rittich will start the Flames home opener vs. Vancouver.

Rittich allowed four goals on 31 shots in the Flames opening night loss in Colorado. It wasn’t a great start to the season for the Flames’ new No.1 netminder, who will start tonight vs. the Canucks. He was 0-0-2 with a 2.82 GAA and .885 SV% in two starts against their Pacific Division rival last season.

Rittich will start the Flames season opener in Colorado.

Rittich went 27-9-5 with a 2.61 GAA and .911 SV% in 2018-19. He had a chance to run with the starting job and faltered and it resulted in Mike Smith starting in the postseason. With Smith now in Edmonton, Rittich will get another chance, this time with Cam Talbot as his backup. He will start the season vs. an Avalanche team that he was 2-0-0 with a 2.49 GAA and .918 SV% against last year.

The Flames have re-signed David Rittich to a two-year extension worth $5.5M ($2.75M AAV).

Rittich played very well for stretches of the 2019 season, going 27-9-5 with a 2.61 GAA and .911 SV% in 45 games with the Flames. However, when it came to the postseason, the Flames leaned on Mike Smith and were ultimately bounced in the first-round. Coming into 2020, Rittich will be battling with Cam Talbot for the No.1 job and the 26-year-old probably has the early edge to win the spot.

Rittich led the Flames onto the ice for warmups.

Rittich allowed two goals on 25 shots in the Flames win in Los Angeles on Monday. Rittich has won five of his last six starts while posting a 2.35 GAA and .913 SV%. Rittich has been excellent but he is a bit of a risky start with seven of the Flames regulars sitting out tonight in Anaheim.

Rittich will start Tuesday vs. the Devils.

Rittich allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Flames win over the Golden Knights on Sunday. The win snapped a brief two game losing skid for Rittich, who is 3-2-0 with a 2.62 GAA and .908 SV% in his last five starts. Rittich’s play has dropped off a bit recently, but he is a must-start on home-ice vs. a Devils team that lost six in a row (0-5-1).
