David Rittich lacks playoff experience, but he sees this as an opportunity to change that.
Rittich had a 24-17-6 record, 2.97 GAA, and .907 save percentage in 48 starts in the regular season. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in a playoff game yet. That might change soon, but Flames coach Geoff Ward isn't making any promises. The plan is for Rittich and Cam Talbot to compete for the starting gig during training camp and whoever Ward feels had a better camp will start in Game 1 of the qualifying round against Winnipeg.
