Cam Talbot Rewarded With Second Straight Start

Cam Talbot Rewarded With Second Straight Start

Photo by John Cordes/NHLI via The Flames keeper’s solid showing in Anaheim no doubt contributed into him starting tonight. Projected Lines After his strong performance against the Anaheim Ducks Cam Talbot will be rewarded with another start in goal for the Flames. Joining him on the ice will be Andrew Mangiapane as the Flames forward returns to the lineup tonight and finds himself skating with Derek Ryan Tobias Rieder. Sam Bennett appears to still be dinged up and will miss tonight’s game against the Capitals. Bill Peters has shuffled and mixed his lines over the last few games...

Rate the Flames (2) at Ducks (1): Talbot Outduels Gibson in Victory

Photo by John Cordes/NHLI via Flames backup has a fantastic night as Calgary wins in Anaheim Heading into tonight’s tilt with the Anaheim Ducks, there weren’t a ton of reasons to feel positive if you were a Calgary Flames fan. The team was coming off an absolutely dreadful performance last night in a 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings and was playing the second half of a back-to-back. Then we found out Sam Bennett wouldn’t be dressing as Alan Quine was called up to replace him. Finally, it’s the Honda Center, winning there is just something Calgary doesn’t do. Tonight though,...

Rate the Flames (5) vs Red Wings (1): Wings Burned in Calgary

Candice Ward-USA TODAY Sports Calgary moves above .500 with the win Don’t look now but the Calgary Flames have their first little win streak of the 2019-20 season thanks to a 5-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night. The Flames got goals from Andrew Mangiapane, Elias Lindholm, Sam Bennett, Derek Ryan, and Mark Giordano in the win while David Rittich put forth yet another strong outing, making 27 saves on 28 shots. However the victory did come at a cost with both Andrew Mangiapane and Elias Lindholm leaving early due to injury and not returning. No update yet on...

Flames ride secondary-scoring to victory over Red Wings

Secondary scoring woes … Pffft. The Calgary Flames snuffed out that storyline in a blink, with three supporting-casters — bottom-six forwards Sam Bennett, Andrew Mangiapane and Derek Ryan — lighting the lamp to lead the hosts to Thursday’s 5-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings at the Saddledome. The depth sorts also did the bulk […]

Milan Lucic & Sam Bennett With The Old Switcheroo

Candice Ward-USA TODAY Sports Bennett moves up, Lucic moves down. The Flames made a minor change to their lines from Tuesday night's game. Sam Bennett has moved up to the third line to skate with Andrew Mangiapane and Derek Ryan. Looch will slide down to the fourth line for the Flames tilt with the Detroit Red Wings.

Flames Mixing The Bottom Six Up A Touch

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Sam Bennett to anchor the 4th line tonight. In an effort to potentially spark a very lackluster Flames group, Bill Peters is moving and shuffling some players through the lineup. After being a healthy scratch on Sunday, Mark Jankowski will make his return to the lineup and Sam Bennett finds himself relegated to 4th line duty for tonight's contest. FORWARDS Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik Milan Lucic - Derek Ryan - Andrew Mangiapane Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski - Austin Czarnik DEFENCE Mark...

Andrew Mangiapane & Rasmus Andersson Are Rewarded For Their Play

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Michael Frolik and T.J. Brodie may well be looking at their permanent replacements. As the Flames take to the ice in Dallas tonight they will have a slightly different look their lines. Both Andrew Mangiapane and Rasmus Andersson will be rewarded for their play by moving up in the lineup. Mangiapane will replace Michael Frolik on the 2nd line, whereas Andersson will be paired up top with Mark Giordano.

Michael Frolik Demoted For Tonight’s Game Against LA

Photo by Gerry Thomas/NHLI via To the 4th line you go Mr. Frolik. Projected Lines In the biggest non-surprise ever the Flames have sent Michael Frolik down to the 4th line for tonight’s contest against the Kings. Frolik is in a weird spot as the Flames should have and maybe even were trying to deal him over the summer and now it’s like he’s playing out the string with no end in sight. Sam Bennett will get the call to take his spot alongside Mikael Backlund and Matthew Tkachuk. If Bennett remotely produces the famed 3M Line should be permanently put down and the Flames should...

Tobias Rieder Makes His Regular Season Debut

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports No Austin Czarnik after he took two big hits in the Flames loss to the Avalanche. The Flames will make one minor change tonight as the Canucks come to town. Austin Czarnik is not in the lineup after taking a hit and leaving Thursday night's game and not returning. In his place Tobias Rieder will make his Flames regular season debut.

Good Luck Playing Against That Third Line

Good Luck Playing Against That Third Line

Perry Nelson-USA TODAY Sports The bruisers aren’t just reserved for 4th line duty anymore. Projected Lines Buckle up because here comes your 2019-20 Calgary Flames! As Calgary hits the ice in Colorado tonight there’s a few changes throughout the lineup that should be beneficial for all involved. The top two lines are status quo, but what really stands out is Calgary’s third line. Sam Bennett, Milan Lucic and Derek Ryan are going to make it very hard to play against that grouping this season. Where the “grit” line is normally reserved for 4th line grinders, Calgary has moved...

The evolution of Sam Bennett, from first round pick to Mr. Versatility

The initial expectations of Sam Bennett were, as they are with many of the top NHL draft picks, lofty. That will always be associated with the Flames’ fourth overall pick in 2014 as the offensive production side of his game — according to so-called experts predicting the lives of teenagers trying to succeed among the […]
