Mic'd up Markstrom giving Oettinger the best compliment a goalie can get

At the end of round 1 Calgary defeated Dallas with a small margin, due to an great goalie duel.

"A big, athletic goaltender who fits the mold of what NHL teams are looking for these days, he has a history of success at lower levels and is a quick learner who is working hard to improve his game. Struggles a bit on the penalty kill, which should improve with experience. His ideal partner is a veteran who can help him grow his game."

Oettinger ended Game 6 with 2 GAA. 41 saves and a.951 SV% against the Flames in a series that looked poised to go either way. Oettinger joins the likes of Ken Dryden, Curtis Joseph, Jonas Hiller, and Ed Belfour for most saves in a playoff series.

If you still aren't sold on Oettinger, consider that the Flames had a whopping 129 shot attempts in Game 7 compared to Dallas' 55. Despite Calgary cleary being the superior team, the Stars came one goal away from eliminating them.

Markstrom told Oettinger: "Keep Going Man You're The Fucking Future" and there is no doubt that Oettinger is a Star in the making.
