Mikko Koskinen allowed three goals on 29 shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Calgary Flames. Koskinen played a solid game and really can't be blamed for the loss despite allowing three goals. Tyler Toffoli beat the 33-year-old with a couple of nice shots in the second period. Johnny Gaudreau also scored a beautiful, highlight-reel goal on a breakaway to put the game to bed for the Flames. Koskinen has a 19-9-3 record with a 3.05 goals-against average and .904 save percentage.
