Getting bored of saying the same stuff now. Why do you do this to me, Calgary?

Do you really wanna make me cry?

Up and at it again, eh? The Flames host the Philadelphia Flyers tonight, a team who have been purely awful since losing in the Stanley Cup Final to the 2010 Chicago Blackhawks. This won’t be a pretty exhibition.

Game recapStats recap

One step forward, two back.

Projected lines

  • Karri Ramo starts, becoming the first goalie to start three games in a row. Not that he’s overly earned it, just Hiller is injured and Ortio wasn’t great either. Might as well be consistently bad.
  • Another game, another line shakeup. Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan are reunited, and are joined by Sam Bennett. Jiri Hudler will play second line LW. Derek Grant replaces Mason Raymond.
  • The D is changed too – Brodano is reunited, Dougie Hamilton has the task of dragging Kris Russell up, and Dennis Wideman partners Deryk Engelland.
