Flames_Reto_Berra_2013CHICAGO — With a tendency to gravitate toward goaltenders when it comes to making friends with teammates, Patrick Kane needed no formal introduction to the Flames’ Reto Berra on the occasion of the goaltender’s his first NHL start.

The pair became close when they played for ECH Biel-Bienne of the Swiss League – where the winger played during last season’s lockout – so Kane was not surprised by Berra’s effort in the Flames’ 3-2 overtime victory over the Blackhawks on Sunday night at the United Center.

“For whatever reason I’ve always been pretty close with the goalies I’ve played with and I knew him really well,” Kane said. “He’s one of those goalies that never really quits and is never out of the play.”
