Hiller wants ‘nothing more’ than to show Ducks ‘made a mistake’

Here’s something you may not know — of all the active goalies with at least 10 playoff appearances, only three have a higher career postseason save percentage than Calgary’s Jonas Hiller (.932).

Hiller was mostly excellent in the Flames’ first-round victory over Vancouver, posting a .931 save percentage in six games (though he did get pulled in Game 6). Now he’s got his sights set on Anaheim, which happens to be the team that cut him loose after last season.

“At the end, you want nothing more than to beat that team and prove to them they made a mistake not re-signing you,” Hiller told the Globe and Mail. “It should be a fun series.

“I spent seven years there. I know so many people there. Sure, the team has changed since last year, but just to be in that building, which was home for me for so long, it’s definitely going to be special.”
