Tanev Skates But Inactive, Huby Doesn’t Skate At All



Projected Lines

Calgary Flames versus Winnipeg Jets

Scotiabank Saddledome

Calgary, Alberta

The Flames are back home from a road trip that was supposed to cure what ailed them, and while they will bring home nothing but L’s the underlying numbers and analytics are starting to curve towards “trust the process” territory. We’ll see if the dam finally breaks tonight against the Jets on Hockey Night in Canada.

We start in the crease, where Jacob Markstrom will be back in after yielding the blue paint for a single start to backup Dan Vladar.

Per Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960:

Markstrom enters tonight with four wins and three losses so far on the campaign. He has an .893 Save Percentage overall having stopped 234 of 262 shots faced. It’s been three straight starts since he posted a SV% above .900 but he has seen overall improvement in his game.

While Chris Tanev did skate this morning but Jonathan Huberdeau didn’t, it doesn’t appear we’ll see any other major swaps to the skater formations.

Per Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 from morning skate:

If morning skate holds, everything should shake down as follows:

FORWARD 1: Ruzicka-Lindholm-Toffoli

FORWARD 2: Dube-Kadri-Coleman

FORWARD 3: Mangiapane-Backlund-Lewis

FORWARD 4: Lucic-Rooney-Ritchie

DEFENSE 1: Hanifin-Andersson

DEFENSE 2: Zadorov-Weegar

DEFENSE 3: DeSimone-Gilbert


Markstrom (Starter)
