Karri Ramo made 31 saves to record his second NHL shutout as the Calgary Flames topped the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Monday night.

Mark Giordano scored for Calgary, which improved to 34-38-7. The Flames are 16-20-4 on the road this season.

Cory Schneider stopped 21 of 22 shots for New Jersey, which fell to 34-29-16. New Jersey's loss also allowed the New York Rangers to clinch a playoff berth.

Both Calgary and the Devils have three games remaining this season.

Neither the Flames nor Devils scored until Giordano's power-play goal 23 seconds into the third as both teams were unable to take advantage of opportunities.
