Nikita Nesterov Slots Into Flames Lineup

With Noah Hanifin in the shelf for the reminder of the season Nesterov is back in the lineup.



The Flames will make an adjustment to their lineup tonight upon learning that Noah Hanifin will be out for the remainder of the season. The Flames defenceman will require season ending shoulder surgery and that will allow Nikita Nesterov to slot back into the Flames lineup tonight. As for who he will be defending in front of, that is a mystery. Jacob Markstrom has started every game since David Rittich was traded to Toronto and the Flames will make the decision on who starts tonight around game time.
