The Calgary Flames are in Pennsylvania to take on the Philadelphia Flyers. It’s their first and last stop at the keystone state this year. The puck drops nice and early, 11:05 A.M. M.S.T.!

The lines are all messed up from Matthew Tkachuk’s suspension. Troy Brouwer is going to be on the right side of Mikael Backlund and Michael Frolik while Matt Stajan is back into the lineup. The defense will remain the same while Mike Smith is back in net.

The Flyers biggest strength has been in net so far this year. They Michal Neuvirth and former Flame Brian Elliott have combined to give the Flyers the best save percentage in five-on-five situations so far this year. Elliott gets the start tonight as he ranks one spot lower than Smith in five-on-five save percentage out of all netminders with at least five games played.
