(NHL roundup) Flames give Devils a fright
(04-08 16:16)

Karri Ramo (Pictured) made 31 saves to record his second National Hockey League shutout as the Calgary Flames topped the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Monday, dealing a huge blow to the Devils' Stanley Cup playoff hopes.
Mark Giordano scored for Calgary, who have been eliminated from the playoff race.
Cory Schneider stopped 21 of 22 shots for the Devils, who are three points behind Columbus for the last playoff spot in the East. New Jersey's loss allowed the New York Rangers to clinch a playoff berth.
The Vancouver Canucks, meanwhile, were eliminated from playoff contention with a 3-0 loss to the Pacific-leading Anaheim Ducks.
John Gibson made 18 saves to record a shutout in his NHL debut and Daniel Winnik, Kyle Palmieri and Matt Beleskey scored for Anaheim, which is three points ahead of San Jose for first place in the division.
Gibson was not tested much but made a huge save on Niklas Jensen to preserve the shutout with about eight minutes gone in the third.
The Minnesota Wild also closed in on a playoff berth in the West with a 1-0 win over the Winnipeg Jets.
Charlie Coyle scored in the second period and Ilya Bryzgalov made 24 saves for his fourth shutout of the season for Minnesota.
Minnesota would need to lose their final three games and Phoenix would need to win four straight for the Wild to miss the playoffs.—AP
