Projected Lines

Calgary Flames @ Washington Capitals

Capital One Arena, Washington DC

We start in the blue paint for lineups at this afternoon tilt, where a familiar face gets another go!

Per Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun:

Markstrom is getting his seventh start in the last eight contests, including a stretch of five straight before Dan Vladar took over last game. He comes into tonight with an .889 Save Percentage and eight wins on the year.

Only one other major change, as the skater’s side sees two swaps.

Also per Wes Gilbertson:

Brett Ritchie will return from injury after missing two games with an injury sustained against the Florida Panthers last Saturday. This will swap Kevin Rooney to the press box for some afternoon popcorn. The Flames will then shuffle Trevor Lewis off of fourth line RW to Center on that trio.

Lineup Looks:


Without any last minute surprises, lines are projected as follows:

FORWARD 1: Ruzicka-Lindholm-Toffoli

FORWARD 2: Dube-Kadri-Mangiapane

FORWARD 3: Huberdeau-Backlund-Coleman

FORWARD 4: Lucic-Lewis-Ritchie

DEFENSE 1: Hanifin-Andersson

DEFENSE 2: Zadorov-Weegar

DEFENSE 3: Gilbert-Tanev

GOALTENDERS: Markstrom (starting) Vladar (backup)
