Flodell made 65 saves in two games last week backstopping the Blades to a pair of victories on home ice where he earned first star honours in both contests. He recorded his first shutout of the season on Thursday with a 31-save performance as part of a 2-0 victory over the Prince Albert Raiders, then made 34 saves on Saturday in a 3-1 triumph over the Portland Winterhawks.
