Monahan, Bennett close to returning to Flames’ lineup

Calgary Flames (1) @ Winnipeg Jets (2): Flames Battle Hard, Just Fall Short against Jets

Calgary couldn’t find a late tying goal Calgary Flames (1) at Winnipeg Jets (2) Recap Coming into the game it was pretty clear that the circumstances were pretty stacked against the Flames. Sean Monahan and Sam Bennett were both missing the game for precautionary reasons, the team was playing on the 2nd half of a back-to-back with travel and a time change, and they were facing one of the league’s better teams in Winnipeg. They were also using the rather unorthodox 11F-7D lineup with Michael Stone seeing his first action since November. With all that being said, the Flames put forth a...

Nothing's Changing As The Devils Come To Town

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. FORWARDS Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Elias Lindholm Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik Sam Bennett - Mark Jankowski - Austin Czarnik Andrew Mangiapane - Derek Ryan -...
