GameThread: Calgary Flames Host NY Rangers

With sickness going through the team, tonight's lineup will most likely be a last-minute decision.



The Calgary Flames are looking to win 9 in a row at home tonight as they host the NY Rangers. But, with an unknown lineup, it could be tough. The sick bug has hit the team pretty hard by the sound of it and Bob Hartley couldn’t even name a starting goalie for tonight’s game.

As Liam noted in our game preview, Dougie Hamilton and Johnny Gaudreau are close to hitting milestones. As well, Markus Granlund has been playing well, hopefully earning a permanent place on the roster. But with the return of Lance Bouma soon, the lineup will probably be changed again.

For now, hopefully this sickness passes quickly because this is the last home game for the Flames before they head out on the road again for a lengthy trip to Nashville, Dallas, St. Louis, and Detroit next week.
