CALGARY - Joey MacDonald is “feeling fine.”

That's the word from the Calgary Flames, who got a post-game scare when MacDonald needed medical assistance — leaving the dressing room on a stretcher — after Friday's 3-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

MacDonald did not return to Calgary with the team, instead staying behind to receive treatment for dehydration. He's en route home from the Windy City sometime Saturday.

The 33-year-old netminder, who was battling the flu bug at the beginning of a three-game road-trip, faced 38 shots in Friday's 3-1 loss, the Flames' final outing of the 48-game season.

The team will report to the Saddledome for exit meetings and end-of-season medicals Sunday.
