Gamethread: Calgary Flames At Philadelphia Flyers

It's the beginning of a 4-game road trip for the Flames after the trade deadline passes and the Flames remained active in trades.



The Calgary Flames start off a 4-game road trip this week with a stop in Philadelphia to take on the Flyers tonight at the Wells Fargo Center.

Considering that the trade deadline has passed, which saw Markus Granlund going to the Vancouver Canucks, Jiri Hudler going to the Florida Panthers, and Kris Russell heading to the Dallas Stars, the lineups will be permanently different as of today.

Tonights projected lineup includes Jonas Hiller in net, Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie as the first line of defense and Deryk Engelland/Dougie Hamilton and Tyler Wotherspoon/Jakub Nakladal as the other pairings. Up front, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan will have David Jones as a linemate. Jones, who is a UFA this summer, was not traded at the deadline today as some had speculated. Joe Colborne, Mikael Backlund, and Michael Frolik will back up the first offensive line while Micheal Ferland, Sam Bennett, Josh Jooris, Brandon Bollig, Matt Stajan, and Lance Bouma will make up the third and fourth lines.
