Calgary Flames @ Columbus Blue Jackets

Nationwide Arena

Columbus, Ohio

It’s back on the road for the Calgary Flames, and back-to-back as they’ll visit Columbus tonight and Toronto tomorrow.

From morning skate, it looks like Dan Vladar will get a well-earned break tonight from patrolling the blue paint.

Per Eric Francis of Sportsnet:

Markstrom had yielded six of the last eight starts to Vladar, including the most recent three in a row. We’ll see if some rest has helped him sort out the issues he was dealing with. Those on-ice struggles have him entering tonight with an 8-6-0 record, 2.97 GAA and a .912 Save Percentage. He’ll be dealing with a Columbus offense that is 26th overall, averaging 2.84 goals per game this season.

Lineup Looks:


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

FORWARD 1: Huberdeau-Lindholm-Toffoli

FORWARD 2: Dube-Kadri-Mangiapane

FORWARD 3: Ruzicka-Backlund-Coleman

FORWARD 4: Lucic-Lewis-Phillips

DEFENSE 1: Hanifin-Andersson

DEFENSE 2: Weegar-Tanev

DEFENSE 3: Zadorov-Stone

GOALTENDERS: Markstrom (starting) Vladar (backup)
