The Flames will look to get off the schnide tonight, and have gone back to the formula that kept them off it in the first place. There will be reverted line combinations and a scratch as well as an injury, but we start in the blue paint where Jacob Markstrom will get his second start in a row:

Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:

Markstrom saw a few shaky starts but has moreso been hung out to dry, the victim of turnovers and poor play and mental mistakes from the team in front of him. He posted a .903 SV% in the loss to Nashville and enters tonight’s contest with a 4-2 record stopping 158 of 175 shots faced for a .903 Save Percentage on the season.

On the skaters side, Chris Tanev is still being hampered by an injury and did not take part in today’s morning skate.

Per Salim Valji of TSN:
