Nothing's Changing As The Devils Come To Town

Nothing's Changing As The Devils Come To Town

The Flames lineup that took down the Vegas Golden Knights will take the ice tonight. If it ain't broke then don't try to fix it. That's the lineup motto tonight as the Calgary Flames take on the NJ Devils at the Saddledome. Michael Stone was recalled and was skating with the team at practice, but he won't be in the lineup tonight. Instead the Flames will put the same personnel on the ice that defeated the Vegas Golden Knights Sunday night by a score of 6-3. FORWARDS Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik Sam Bennett - Mark...

As The Goalies Turn

As The Goalies Turn

David Rittich will get the start tonight against Vegas. The Flames goalie du jour continues tonight as it's David Rittich's turn to step between the pipes as the Vegas Golden Knights come to town. The Flames haven't had a defacto #1 keeper since Rittich hit his little slump almost 3 weeks ago and both keepers have had their chance to take the spot, but Bill Peters seems content to just rotate his keepers.

Smith In Again, Kylington Out

Smith In Again, Kylington Out

Let the speculation begin! Mike Smith will get his 5th straight start in net as the Flames go for their 4th straight victory. Bill Peters is playing the "win and your in strategy" with Smith as he's gotten the Flames at least a point over the last four games. Oliver Kylington will ride the pine tonight in favour of Dalton Prout. Is he on the trade block? Maybe. Is he in the lineup to bring a little toughness against a Ducks team that likes to take liberties with the Flames? Most likely. FORWARDS Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Matthew Tkachuk Michael Frolik - Mikael Backlund - Elias...
The Lines They Are A Changing

The Lines They Are A Changing

Bill Peters is making adjustments as the Islanders come to town. When things go wonky, you tend to make some adjustments to whatever you are in charge of and that's exactly what Bill Peters is done. Once thought unfathomable, the Flames top line is being broken up. Matthew Tkachuk will join Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, while Elias Lindholm will slide down to the second line with Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik. This is less of a move in regards to Lindholm's play, but most likely a way to try and boost the play of a struggling Matthew Tkachuk. Mike Smith will get another chance to...
